I have a 95 Cougar, and since I have owned it, it just won't idle right. Is there an idle screw somewhere on the carb? It could be the jets too, but I was thinking I would try adjusting the idle screw before I tore the carbs apart. Any help is greatly appreciated.
There are both idle screws and air screws on your carbs. Take a look at the how to part of the forum for a great tutorial on cleaning. I also wrote an explanation regarding how the carbs work, if you read that you should better understand what is ocuring in your carbs.
I believe it is 1/4", but take a piece with you! And dont forget the one INside the tank! Drain the tank to below the outlet, and unscrew the tank fitting! Take it with you as well! It will need to be THAT ID and OD!
