    Easy Adjustment of Idle Mixture Pilot Screw

    The first time I went to adjust the idle mixture pilot screw on my TW I understood the comments I had read here on the forum. I happened to already own a right angle drill adapter that I have used working inside cabinets and desks, thought I would give it a try. Works great. Fits right in and allows me to easily adjust the screw without getting burned. I attach a square handled driver to the end to make counting the turns easier. Anyway, I have the Milescraft version but my local Home Depot and Lowes keeps the Dewalt version in stock and I think it is even a bit smaller. They run about $18 and you might find they come in handy for other projects. I tried to attach a link but I don't have enough posts so you will have to find it yourself

    Mine with the bit I use.

    Dang that’s a cool tool tip. Thanks. I don’t need it for the carb but if I had one I might use it.

    How do you count the turns? Does it rotate that slowly?

    I'm guessing he doesn't use a drill but rather by hand or with a screwdriver for extra grip on the input shaft.

    As Miaugi said,,, I attach a square handled nut driver to the end and use it by hand.
