[DML] Re: Missing idle mixture screw?

Unfortunately, Utah does not exempt from emissions testing vehicles 
built after 1967 (why would they when they can get their $25 per 
vehicle emissions test fee).  Any thoughts on the original problem?  
The car seems to run just fine at all RPMs and starts right up every 
time.  Also, the area where the screw seems to be missing has a 
raised ring area, where an adjustment screw would seem to fit, but 
instead of a screw is a deep hole...
