URGENTLY NEEDED , idle adjustment screw.......

Postby Brake buster » Thu Aug 15, 2019 2:17 pm

after my engine works, i decided to try and setup the idle as per the prescribed method, it would not however drop below 1000 rpm ,

so , as is my nature i took it apart and found this

yes, a PO has completely rendered this adjusting screw from the idle body completely useless , and i am in need of a new one,

as they are not separately available as a part, i need to buy a used one, a whole body might be better as this has probably mullered the internal surface as well

any used ones out there, i only need the casting and this screw, my stepper motor is fine
