97 Z44o Fuel Problems/clutch Problems

Hey Im Having Problems Getting My Carbs Set Right, I Had To Take Them Out And Clean Them Up A Bit Now I Cant Get My Air Fuel Mixtures Right,and Ideas Where It Should Be Set At Its Both Carbs,

Also My Belt Doesnt Sit Anywhat Tight On The Clutch When I Try And Go It Does Nothing But Smoke I Can Watch The Clutch Clamp Together And It Wants To Move The Track But It Really Just Smokes Alot And Does Nothing Is Seems Also Like It Has A Little More Pull When Its Cold But Its Still Not What It Should Be But When My Sled Does Run It Wont Pull Out Of A Snow Bank.

Man, that is gotta be tough to capitalize every word in a sentence. I know it's tough to read for sure...

Not sure how cleaning your carbs will affect fuel/air mixture. I are saying you tore them apart and can't get them back together or did you bend the floats or something. Simply removing and cleaning your carbs doesn't usually affect fuel/air mixtures. You'll need to explain further.

Take a picture of your belt and clutches and post it. How far is the belt down in the secondary?

Yes Cory is rite,, the air screws are turned OUT from lightly seated about 1.5 or 1.25 ,,, imo, your driven clutch needs serviceing, or prolly both,,, sounds like your starting out in high gear,, not good for the little 440,, or any other motor......
