    Idle screw PLEASE HELP!

    No that is the carburetor idle screw. Up on the handle bars there should be an adjuster where the throttle cable screws into the throttle assembly. Most machines have them, maybe not all. Hope this helps.

    Idle screw PLEASE HELP!

    There should be an adjuster for the throttle cable in the throttle assembly, turn the adjuster inwards which will loosen any tension on the cable and allow for more adjustment with the idle screw on the carb. Also make sure your choke is off.

    Idle/Air screw setting

    Im not familiar with your engine specifically, but the idle speed is not typically counted in turns out, the air screw is counted in turns. I think your idle is simply set too low. Try 1or 1.5 turns on the air mixture screw and raise the idle. The engine must be hot in order to set the air...

    Mikuni carb on 212 Predator

    TIllotson 212 or Predator? I had a Tillotson with a 20mm Mikuni 180 main jet, 22.5 pilot jet (stock jetting) and the kart was an animal. The jets are slightly different between vm20 and vm22 so I don't know how relevant this info is, plus the Tillotson was a 10 horse. I would double check for...

    Seat Upholsterer

    ya depends on how far gone the vinyl is for sure. But I've used basic Johnsons baby oil or off the shelf leather/vinyl conditioner from auto parts stores. just apply which ever one to the seat and leave, don't wipe it off for a few days or even a week. You can also do this a few times.

    The vinyl can be rejuvenated if you're interested in that. Baby oil or vinyl/leather conditioner work great. Just let it soak in for days or even weeks and should become plush again.

    Briggs 2.5 HP Engines

    The low hp motors are tough. The 5hp engines have more aftermarket support, such as thin head gaskets which give you more compression. I don't think anyone makes those for the 2hp motors.

    Little help over here please.

    From what I gather you are either leaking gas out of the tank, petcock, or fuel line (check clamps). Or if the oil is over-filled you could force it out of the head gasket or crank breather. About 2/3 of a quart is all you need. Not sure what your carb issue is, but recommend watching carb...
