There are two "needles" in the NT carb.

The one you moved the clip on and the needle valve that is accessed
by removing the float bowl and float arm.
The needle valve I am talking about shuts off the flow of fuel into the
carb bowl by pressing against a brass seat which is part of where the
fuel line attaches to the NT carb.
