Default Re: Idling high

Most likely a carb issue, yes.

My engine idled a little high and I couldn't get it lower just like you. I took the carb off and saw that the throttle plate was tweaked ever so slightly in the bore keeping it from closing completely.

The fix was loosen the 2 screws, snap the throttle shut a few times until there was barely any light coming in around the plate and then tighten the screws back up.

Now it idles low and slow just like it should.
