Finally getting back to the forum and just read all previous updates. @PiscBc2 , glad you got it all going. I've been there myself and did responded exactly the way you did, but as you keep working on it you will be teaching your self as you go along. Like the starter for example, NOW your a pro at them for sure lol. As for carb tuning, as @Melson stated, if you lose you place or it just gets to the point of loss, just start over by resetting the needles and go again. Remember every machine is different and the base start setting of the carb is just that a base,some like less, some like more. As you go along you will also learn to tune a carb like clockwork.
