newb question needs an answer

On a dellorto sha carb where is the idle screw. Is it the screw on the side with a spring in it. If not what is that screw with the spring.

Re: newb question needs an answer

Yes, there is only one bolt on the side of a SHA and that is for idle adjustment.

Re: newb question needs an answer

Does that usually have a spring on it and stick out a bit because in videos of people tuning there idle on different carbs there is no spring. Just a very small screw that doesn't stick out much at all.

Re: newb question needs an answer

Yes it does, and you may be confusing the idle adjustment on your carb with the idle mixture screw on other carbs. All carbs have an idle adjustment like the SHA and yes typically they stick out and have a little spring to keep them from turning under vibration. SHA's don't have idle mixture screws unfortunately.

Okay thanks a bunch! I learned a lot.
