    I have a newer Troy Bilt pressure washer - model# 020344. It has the Honda engine.


    I have a problem with it running lean and don't know what else to try. I know its lean because it only runs smooth when I choke it about 80%. With the choke open (more air) it "pulses" (idle up, idle down, idle up, idle down, idle up, etc). Raaauuurrraaaauuuurrrraauuu. Not sure how else to describe that :)

    Here is what I have tried thus far:
    drained the float
    new gas
    sprayed carb cleaner into intake
    changed spark plug (it looked lean)

    I don't see a fuel screw or air screw. Any other suggestions? I will take pictures if you have questions.
