I searched the internet and found NOTHING!

Can anyone tell me the base line settings for a tecumseh 3hp carb.? The engine is in good running cond. the carb has been diassembled and cleaned. I need to know the idle screw, air/fuel mixture screw and wide open throttle screw on the bottom of the bowl settings.

Thanks!
OH...Im on a go-Kart and im a 185 lbs. :-)

I start mine at 1 1/2 turns each. Get it warm and fine tune from there. Set the main under load of possible.

Problem is she "Screams like an Eagle" down the alley until I come back then when I give it throttle it wants to die out. Off throttle..it idles. So that makes me think not enough fuel. So I turn the bowl screw out half at a time and does not seem to make a dif. Maybe Chad you can stop down and check it out and give me your opinion before fall/winter hits!?
