    in need of a carburetor adjusting tool

    anyone have one they could loan out? i have mine loaned out and need to adjust the carbs on the bikes but dont want to have to pay for another tool when i already have one. the person i loaned mine to is out of town for a few weeks...and i was hoping i wouldnt have to wait or spend $45 for another one.

    thanks in advance for any and all help...

    Blue electrical connector works in a pinch.

    Jimmy,
    I was able to turn my screw with a regular screwdriver from a set of those small cheap Harbor Freight jeweler's screwdrivers...
    Then I got Glen's permanent screw....

    Jimmy, before I got Glenns permanent a/f adjuster, I used a 22 shell, put a flat edge on it just to get the screw out. Then I filed a slit in it big enough for a small flat-tip screwdriver.

    my big paws wont fit in to adjust without taking half the engine apart. i also want to adjust with the bikes idling. both have gradually been getting rough...and i have been kind of putting it off waiting to do some other work on each one. then a few things happened that took most of my fall and winter...so now i am far behind on the winter plans.

    As Tom stated, a .22 caliber casing open end shaped to a "D" will do the job, just flattens a side.
