Clean tank and gas

Turned up pilot screw 1/2 turn

And, uh, set the idle so it would run when started with throttle off (too paranoid of kickbacks to hold it open when starting) and won't stall when choke is shut off. Started, ran around the 'hood, shut off and restarted. So far so good.

I was pretty sure I got all the little passages the first time, but that's why I took it apart again and used carb cleaner and compressed air.

Anyway, I am getting better at getting the carbs in and out,

and thanks for the tips.

EDIT: Yep, just needed the idle turned up (certainly, it did need all the cleanup as well), so I am good to go. Whooo hoo!
