I have a troy built mower 5.5 hp Tecumseh. It was dripping gas
out the carb. I removed the carb. Replaced needle and seat.
Cleaned it(spray/rinse/air)and replaced gaskets.
It does not have a carburetor adjustment screw. The engine
smokes (runs rich). Just a red primer blub on the side. What
went wrong? How do I adjust the carb?
Also, the float must float- be free of leaks.
Then there are the mixture adjustments- typically high & low-speed.
Sounds like one or both of yours are waaaaay rich. Typically turning
clockwise leans mixture.
