Does anyone know where the mixture set screw is on a koler 6.5 kw genset. Its on my 1989 3207 aft cabin. When i run it, i have a film of raw gas on the water, and my plugs are black.
Thanks

Should be right at the base of the carb. or close to the base. But I'd be checking the air filter and timing first.
Thanks

Air filter is ok, jet setting is ok, timing is ok, i think it may just be in need of a carb overhaul.......hopefully .... Lol
