Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
There are many versions of the basic CCK engine, and not all of them are the same.
What is the full model number of your unit?
Not a problem - thank you for your service, fellow vet (Go Army!).
On this unit, the initial carb settings are as follows:
Idle needle - 1 to 1 1/4 turns out from lightly seated
Main needle - 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 turns out from lightly seated
I have uploaded the adjustment procedure for you.

It depends on whether you have the Zenith carb or the Walbro.
The idle adjust is a screw that is on the back side.
On one of the carbs, the main adjust is a "T" nut right beside the idle screw.
On the other, the main adjust is a "handwheel" on the front of the carb.
Did you get the adjustment procedure?
