    Cool another carb question???????

    I see everyone says to set the low speed at 1/2 turn out but what does it mean when I see someone say the high speed they set at m1,c1/2 and p3/4 what does all that mean.

    The 72.5 lows and 77.5 highs are the jet size numbers.
    The m1 = 1 turn out from seated on the adjuster screws. C1/2 = 1/2 turn counter clockwise from seated and so on.

    MAG is short for Magneto, which is another name for the stator assembly inside the flywheel, on the front end of the engine.

    PTO is Power Take Off, which is the rear of the engine, where the power feeds the drive shaft.

    CEN is the center.

    M = MAG (front) cylinder/carb
    C = Center cylinder/carb
    P = PTO (rear) cylinder/carb

    The number or fraction is the turns out from fully closed (adjusting screw gently closed but not torqued down, then turned back out the specified amount).
