It should be 1-1/2 turns on the main jet and the Idle jet where it runs the best. You have to play with these old critters. Also the carb might need a good cleaning. Arlie

I don't remember the kind of carb that is on the 6BH but I do remember that the one I have tends to leak like a lot of Briggs carbs!
