    Idle mixture screw broken.

    I have my q-jet off the engine, I tried adjusting one mixture screw, well it was seized and the head just broke off of it, so there's no way to adjust it now. I set the other so the needle sticks out the same, but that's 6 turns out. Is that too rich? Will I have problems with it?

    Well I would drill out the screw and get another one . This way you can do the right adjustments

    Don't know how to drill it out, but I bought another throttle plate/body for ten bucks, works good now.
