    When breaking in a new engine which notch is best to put the C clip on the needle. It an NT carb?

    At the moment i have it on the 3rd notch from the top. It is a 5 notch needle.

    I'm not particularly knowledgable about these, so I can't give an expert opinion.

    But I'd be okay with notch #3 of 5. Though you might want to try #2. Either one should give it enough lube. As long as it runs properly.

    But there are other folks around here whose advice you should heed more than mine.

    You'll hear from them, I'm sure.

    Good luck.
