Well you can see if the needle is closing all the way or hanging up somewhere if so you can figure out why. That should put you ahead of the game. If it is closing then you know that isnt it.

The idle adjustment is to stop it from closing down nothing more. If you run it out all the way the needle will just close down max then as you run it in, it forces the needle to rise from the seat. or as is usual it just wont seat completely when the idle is adjusted correctly,
