Default Re: Couple questions ... Idle screw, fine-tuning

More air higher rev?) I think that was why I didn't notice any change when I was slowly turning it left. It was already running on full air. Can wait to see how it's gonna run now I know it needed less air. It already seemed perfect. Ordering a new scre off the Internet. Anyone know if I can find those at a hardware store or small motor shop?
It is not an air /fuel ratio screw. it simply engages a ramp in the carb slide raising the slide and increasing throttle at idle. you could prolly make one from a macine screw from a hardware store just round the end to engage the ramp smoothly. or buy one from a vendor
