qt50 carb adjustment

Postby moped qt50 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 8:18 pm

Father-in-law just gave me his 1984 QT50. So far I have replaced the snapped throttle cable and got it running. However, I don't know how to adjust the carb. There are two screws on the side of the carb. The one closest to the air filter doesn't have a spring on it. I believe it probably should. Could someone tell me how many turns out from seated the screws should be. It tops out at about 22 MPH. Just turned 800 miles and seems to be in good shape.
Also, I tried to download the owners manual and repair manual from this websidte and my computer told me the internet connection had been lost. ???
Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Manuals still there, loaded fine for me. Maybe you have slow connection.
