If carbureter loads up after considerable service, float level should be checked. Wear on lip of float lever will raise float level. Float level may be reset by bending lip of float lever down to raise level or bending lever up to lower float level. Only a very slight bend is needed.
If motor stalls while idling, reset idle adjustment screw and throttle lever adjusting screw. If these adjustments do not correct the trouble, remove low speed jet tube and clean thoroughly with compressed air. Examine and see that tube seats air-tight in body casting, top and bottom. If not, replace with a new tube of identical specifications. NEVER CHANGE A LOW SPEED JET TUBE FROM ONE CARBURETER TO AN-OTHER.
Increased resistance on foot throttle indicates a clogged pump jet. Pump jet should be removed and cleaned with compressed air, which, in many cases, will remove the dirt or lint. However, it is usually advisable to replace the pump jet, as its cost is nominal. All jets and ball checks must be seated gasoline tight.
Poor acceleration may be due to damaged or worn plunger leather in accelerating purnp, corrosion in pump cylinder, loose or cracked cylinder, cracked plunger cup or bent pump arm (parts which may be replaced at small cost). If plunger is removed from cylinder, always use loading tool in re-assembling to avoid damage to plunger leather.
Pump stroke on carbureters I36S and 150S adjust-able for high or low temperatures. Set to longest stroke for cold weather, shorter stroke for hot weather driving.
