    What do you guys use to adjust the jets on your carb? I tried my most narrow screw driver and it did not want to fit through the guide to the adjustment knobs....On my 359. Maybe the tapered end of a file?

    You need one of those screwdrivers that nerds carry in a pocket protector, the kind with the clip on it.

    Its long and narrow. They used to give them away at computer trade shows years ago... so I still have a stash of them. They were mainly used for RS232 cables....

    (BrotherBart, do you still have yours from the VAX/PDP days?)

    Yep. Among others. And a lot of those buttons that were everywhere back then at the shows. Favorite is still "IMS goes down on me every day".

    OK, since I haven't tried to adjust the carb on my 359 yet, forgive me if I am off-based. But if you need a small screwdrive, smaller than most normal screwdrivers, try to get those eyeglass screwdriver sets. Theyll be tiny and they'll have a head on it that you can rotate and use to spin the drive part....

    So is richer to the right and leaner to the left?

    Just the opposite. Left=richer. Right=leaner.
