There's only one screw on carberator and it's turned out 2 5/8 just like the manual calls for. Like I said, runs like a champ until you put the airbox on. Airbox has brand new filter & for the heck of it, I checked the exhaust too, to make sure air was flowing good. No problems there. At wits end here. New carb wasn't cheap but the time involved in this is a whole 'nother story. I've also put a new cam in, bored out and new piston and rings. I knew the carberator was a problem, as it was leaking and refused to come completely apart for cleaning/repair. So, I bought a new one hoping this would solve my final problem. Alas, still frustrated . . .
