its pretty easy. i moved the fuel filter assembly to get in the side better and remove the top bolt it should be like red and loosen the botton swing the shield done its gonna gush some fuel. then turn the mottor over with a 15/16 deep socket and have some stand up there and look wit a mirror and flashlight and u'll see the thing twist inside and a allen hole will appear and u turn it clockwise to advance and counter clockwise to retard it. pretty easy be careful on how much u turn it it could run way if turned way up and watch ur egts goood luck
