Took a look at the manual...says not to mess with the center tab that actually actuates the valve...says that this carb is set up for strict emissions....and since by the sight glass it runs a little low already...I might not mess with it.

I'd probably end up having it off there several times before it ran right again.

Changing the float level might more likely work on US carbs on the bigger engines?

LaPointe mentions soldering the power valve shut.

I've rebuilt carbs before...but it can be hit or miss at times.
