  5. 4100 Dashpot Adjustment
Our universal dashpot may need the stem cut down in order to fit your carburetor. Once that is accomplished, adjust as in the following:

4100 Dashpot

  • Loosen the dashpot nut.
  • Open choke plate manually, and hold the throttle plate closed.
  • Measure the clearance between the throttle lever and the dashpot plunger tip.
    • Use a drill bit, the size specified in the carburetor kit specifications.
    • Hold the plunger in a depressed position while making this measurement.
  • Turn the dashpot body until you get the correct measurement.
