Thanks for the suggestion, kimcrwbr1, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "idle air".

Are you telling me to turn one or both of the screws on the side of the carb that control the idle speed? Or do you mean the mixture control screw? I have not seen my mixture control, somewhere in these forums I read that it is located on the side of the carburetor towards the engine.

I looked up the idle mix adjustment for the one barrel does your carb have a cap over the idle mix screw if so as long as it is running good never mind.
