    I'm going to have to look that up the next time I'm in the shop.

    Jet screws, wing nuts, they're loose, engine runs fine. Something's not right in this picture.

    Hey, I am with Bob on this. Never have seen a wing nut on a jet screw on any motor. Can you post a picture of the screws and their location. I will find the proper procedure for setting those screws and post it for you.

    its like a set screw in the middle with a single wing nut on the outside. it just spins around loose when the motor is runnin.
