I have a 1982 honda urban express moped, it has an automatic choke on the carb. is 2 adjustment screws whitch one is air and which one is fuel and how many turns in or out shold each screw be? 2nd problem is once i start the moped and get going then let off of the throttle it wants to die. then is really hard to start back up again.

Hi,Will! Are you sure one of those screws,probably the uppermost,isn't an idle adjustment screw? If it is,maybe all you need is to turn it in a little to get the bike to idle,right? BYE!

The top screw is the idle speed, lower one is the idle mixture, 2 turns out aprox.

At the bottom is a drain valve. Sounds like carb could use a good cleaning.

I have found to start hot it helps to open the throttel a little, very little.
