duce harmful emissions. After the engine

at peak performance and to minimize harm-
ful exhaust emissions after the run- -in peri-
od, ask your servicing dealer to adjust your

clutch cover, and shaft must be
fitted before the machine is started,
otherwise parts could come loose
and cause personal injury.
S The carburetor governs the engine's
speed via the throttle control. Air and fuel
are mixed in the carburetor.
S The T- -screw regulates the throttle setting
at idle speed. If the T- -screw is turned
clockwise this gives a higher idle speed;
turning it counterclockwise gives a lower
idle speed.

justed during testing at the factory. Fine

Unit/Maintenance Safety
Disconnect the spark plug before perform-
ing maintenance, except carburetor adjust-


The muffler is designed to reduce the noise
level and to direct the exhaust gases away
from the operator. The exhaust gases are
hot and can contain sparks, which may
cause fire if directed against dry and com-
bustible material.
Mufflers are equipped with a special spark
arrestor mesh. You should clean the mesh
at least once a month. This is best done
with a wire brush. If the mesh is damaged
it should be replaced. A blocked mesh
will cause the machine to overheat and re-
sult in damage to the cylinder and piston.
CAUTION! Never use a machine that has
a faulty or loose muffler. Ensure the muffler
bolts are tight.
