    Keep in mind that your breakin setting are rea rich, so what are they? your gonna have to lean the H/S . Start by turning the H/s clock wise to lean 1/8 turn , get it off the grass and on a black top . Now slowly give it 1/4 to 1/2 throttle to full still running sluggish turn the H/S cw again .

    it told me to go from 4 1/2 turns back down to 2 1/2-3 turns out, can i do this all at once or should i turn it just alittle bit each time and if so how long should i wait before turning it again?

    I would not go that far at once ever. I would lean it a little, run it a tank then go a little more. 1/8 to 1/4 turn at once max. Or if that is too slow for you mabye a half a tank at each one. Want to keep it richish for the first 5-10 tanks though. Others can probably help you more, just my 2 cents.

    Thats exactly what he should do to break it in. ;the break in proccess can be a pain in the butt , but it needs to be done. 41/2 t is a lot but as youll see the truck should start to run better as you lean it out and put more fuel threw it .
