Mixture

Can anybody out there let me know what the mixture setting is on a standard Stromberg Carby on a 186 as my motor is running rich , Motor has been Rebuilt not long ago IE Rebore/new Pistons/Rings ETC or could it be something else as it seemed fine prior to Build, For some reason i seem to have it in my head that you fully screw in mixture screw then back it off one or to times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

mr no bodge jobs

Hi There, Im the owner of the website nobodgejobs.com I have just read some comments that were made about my web site. I would like to say that it was fixing other peoples stuff up that drove me to do something about it. It is very scary about what really goes on out there and how qualifications mean stuff all. Like it was mentioned any moron can open a mechanic shop, but even worse is the fact that they can repair a majorly damaged car and slap some bog on it spray some body deadner underneath and away it goes.
