    OS 18 what? CV-R, TM, TZ?

    18 CV-R:
    11G Slide Carb:
    LSN: 1.5 turns in from flush
    HSN: 2 turns out from bottom

    Don't see anything in the manual for the rotary...

    OS18TM:
    11K Slide carb
    LSN: Flush with throttle arm.
    MSN: .5 turns in from flush with carb body
    HSN: ? (can't find it in the manual, would guess flush with top of the HSN housing. My 18TM is about .5-1 turn in from flush.
