Go to a hardware store and buy some 1/4" thin wall tubing and flatten one end.

Man good idea! I tried using a 22 LR shell last night but the pilot was a little corroded and it didn't budge. I'll have to try the tuning today. Thanks!

I have the real specialty tool bit. Will fit into any screwdriver that uses removable bits. I use a flexible carb tool with mine. I got it via mail order and to minimize shipping charges I bought 2-3 extras and have never got around to selling them. I'll need to look for them but 100% sure they're still around as I saw them just a few months ago. Only talking a few bucks each I believe. PM if interested, I'm in Atascocita.

ok I took a 3/8" brass compression fitting insert sleeve and flattened a notch into it. then on the other side a hammered a philips bit into it to make a phillips head female imprint. now the sleeve fits perfectly over the D pilot screw and I can simply use a phillips screw driver to adjust. I cant do it while its running though.... I tore the carb down and when I pulled the pilot air screw out I noticed there was no rubber plug or washer that came out with it.... I cant really tell if one is stuck in there...

Well I had to spring for a rebuild kit on this carb. tried pulling it and breaking it all down/blowing out the passages and I just cant get it to idle without choke. everything else is fine, it runs good past 1/8 throttle or so without choke it just wont idle. I noticed when I pulled the pilot screw that there was not rubber o ring or washer like the manual shows...
