Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Jeff G. replied 2 years ago.

It depends on the year. Some engines did not have adjustable mixture while others did. If I had your model number I could see which engine you have.

The model number will be on a small plastic tag on the side of the midsection.
