Carb Pilot Screw Hole Plug
Low Cost Fix to prevent loss of Mixture Screw
BY Rocketman and Mecha
Rocketman - If you drilled out your A/F mixture screws plugs and don't want to run the risk of losing the $26.00+ mixture screws from the carbs, plus the hassle of ordering and trying to find one, then here is a simple fix.
Go to the local hardware store like Home Depot and pick up a couple of these Nylon Hole Plug for 1/4" Hole. Price is 35¢ each and you will need two. The picture does not show up well but the plug has sides that make the plug fit snugly in the hole. Just use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry the nylon plug out if you need to do an adjust.
Mecha - I have seen where others use silicone, rubber stoppers, nylon, or whatever to cover the A/F Screws after you adjust them. Here is my fix. I got all the parts at Home Depot for 2.08 in the hardware isle in one of the small parts drawers. Just some small steel zinc plated covers.
