    What is a 5/8 turn out on carb adjustment.

    I grew up with metric system so inches are very foreign to me.
    I am trying to set the carburetor on factory defaults on a 97 SLT 700. Service manual says, 1 1/2 turns out for high jet and it says 5/8 turns out on the low jet.
    I do understand the high jet has to be turned one and a half turns out.
    Do I take 5/8 as a circle devided in to 8 pieces and 5 represents the counterclock wise turn to the 5th piece of the circle. I hope someone will help me on this one.

    5/8 is just shy of 3/4 as far the turns go. Picture a pie with a full slice missing. What is left is 3/4. You want to make a turn out just shy of that and you will be approx. 5/8 out.

    225 degrees!


    think of it this way,, half of 8/8 is 4/8 which equals a half .50 right? then take the other half and cut it up in 4 pieces,, hense..... 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 8/8 !

    5/8 is . 625 6/8 is .750 7/8 is ..875 and 8/8 is 1.0 it goes up .125 each time or better known as a 1/8 (.125) or 12.5 %

    12.5% times 8 equals 1.0

    is it recess yet? lol

    I thought it was the easiest way to get the point across. I mean c'mon, who doesn't like pie? The guy didn't say what part of the world he was in so I used the old pie diagram on the blackboard.

    I recall eating pie for an entire weekend and I didn't gain one pound.
