Phenomenal. These little things blow away the idiots like me who thought, "Shit, maybe it's just supposed to have a lot of play."

And mine does have a LOT of play. Hoowee!

Look at your carbs, it's a yellow knob. If you can't reach it with your hands, use a long screwdriver. Make sure the engine is warm when you set it.

The yellow knob adjusts the engine idle speed. If it's a bigger problem than that, then I don't know.
