I just drained the oil out of my 4 stroke, and can smell gas in the old oil. Any ideas? Also the adjustment screw on the carb, do you adjust in to make it run leaner or do you adjust out? Thanks

I believe screwing it in will lean it out. screwing it out will move the neddle away from the seat and screwing it in will move it closer causing it to move less fuel.

Is your carb leaking externally? I would have to guess that your needle/seat are leaking into the cylinder and down into the oil. See alot of it expecialy if the overflow is blocked with dirt and not letting it get out.

Maybe my overflow is blocked. As I was taking the bike apart a rubber hose fell out that had appeared to have melted off, as it looked ripped and seared shut. And since Im awaitng my manual to arrive I have no idea where it goes.
