    I've got a nice blue and white Homelite 150 and a Remington SL4 I'm getting ready to tune-up. Just wanted to double check and verify some of the fine tuning specs. Mike Acres site is where I attained most of it. Tell me if I'm correct?

    Homelite 150
    Fuel Ratio: 32:1
    Spark Plug Gap: .025
    Carb Screws: H and L ?? I'm thinking 1 1/2 open on both.



    Remington SL4
    Fuel Ratio: 16:1
    Spark Plug: .025
    Carb Screws: H and L ?? I'm still thinking 1 1/2 open on both.

    Can anyone give me some input on this?
    I like to verify with more than one source.
    Den.

    Thanks once again Ray.
    I usually start out grossly rich at 1 1/2 on both, and then after everything is lubed up, I begin to lean it out to around 1 turn on the L, and 1 1/4 turn on the H. Just a standard procedure for me... but I like to double check.
    Whenever the L or H are less than 1 turn open, I get nervous.
