    How to adjust?

    I got my Tornado running after sitting for a few years.

    I have fresh gas and fresh glow plug.

    I followed the manual and turned in the HSN and LSN until snug and then undid them both 3 turns.

    I am getting stalling a lot when letting off the gas.

    I tried watching some vidoes that were linked but I couldn't really follow them (they are way too long IMO)

    I just need some simple written directions.

    I am pretty sure the problem is my low speed needle, how should I adjust it?

    it can stall when you let off the throttle whether the low speed needle is rich or lean. But my guess (Im assuming it accelerates well and doesn't bog at low speed) is that it is too lean. In that case, try turning the needle out (counterclockwise) 1/2 turn. Doing so should allow the engine to stay running when you let off the gas. Once that is achieved, you may find your idle speed is a bit higher. Use the idle set screw to reduce the size of the carb opening at idle to lower the idle speed if needed.

    RE: How to adjust?

    I worked on it today and have it running pretty good.

    It seems the low speed was way too lean.

    I have it running pretty good now, I think I can still find some more top end power but for now I am happy as it runs good and does not stall anymore.

    thank you for your help!

    don't try to go for max power unless you have a temp gun.
