I have adjusted the needle valve on the carb out 1 1/2 times and the motor will now run but it is not up to full song do I need to to adjust more or less I am flying blind as I do not have the manual .Thanks for the help Terry.
It could be either way on the highend needle... no way to know unless I would hear it running. With the throttle full, just turn the highend needle a little at a time each way until it runs properly.

Maybe I need to take the time to do a 2-cycle carb adjustment guide.
Hank I appreciate your help and adjustment guide sounds like a good idea . There is only one adjustment screw on this walboro carb and a limiter to only let you adjust it so far do you leave off the orange piece and adjust it that way ? Thanks for all your help
A single needle carb really only adjusts the high end. Use a pair of plyers to pull of the limiter and then do your adjustment.
