New engines must be operated a minimum duration of two tanks of fuel
break-in before carburetor adjustments can be made. During the break-

will stabilize. Idle speed can be adjusted as required.
High Altitude Operation
This engine has been factory adjusted to maintain satisfactory starting,
emission, and durability performance up to 1,100 feet above sea level

carburetor must be re-adjusted when operating the engine below
1,100 feet ASL, otherwise severe engine damage may result.
