On both the 212 & 216 with old mounts anything I put on top of engine while idling would walk right off/vibrate off. With new mounts I can leave screwdriver, pliers, etc. on engine while idling and they vibrate a little but stay put. The 216 also shakes less after you turn they off.
True, but there is no other way to adjust idle circuit on carb. They also run at idle for a minute or so before they are turned off. Haven't checked the idle speed on either one since setting the carbs/idle according to service manual...can't remember that value offhand.
