Default Re: idle srew question

You are just backwards. The idle screw has a small nub on the end that moves into a slot in the throttle drum. As you screw it in, (clockwise) it blocks the downward movement of the throttle thereby increasing the rpm. Unscrewing, (counter clockwise) allows the throttle (needle) to move lower which reduces fuel flow and engine speed.
