Idle circuit for most small engine
carbs can be located by looking for a small hole just inside the air intake of the carb. To clean, remove the carb, insert small red tube provided with carb cleaner and flush circuit well with carb cleaner (it will exit small holes inside the carb body and flow out of the opposide end of the intake. This should clear most dirty idle circuit problems.
manual covering most small Tohatsu's can be found here:
