Default RE: Quadra 52 won't run under 3500 HELP


Check the following: Long shot, but possible.

I lay a straight edge across the carb over the lever and you can see which it is, High, low or just right. It should tourch the straight edge just barely.
You are correct. I did check this and the point is about .015 below the level of the machine surface. That is a good observation. I plan to bend the tang to make it exactly level with the machine surface. Attached are figures of 2 types of carbs one type showing .012" below and the other flush. Currently my carb is set as in Figure A. When the new "rubber" arrives I will plan to adjust the lever as you suggested and give it a whirl. Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't exactly sure which Figure A or B would apply to my carb.
