Re: [DML] 3 Brass Screws Infront Of Engine

I thought I heard those did nothing really on our engines.  I was  
told to tighten them up and then back them off about half a turn.

Mine were loose as well (spun by hand) and I had the 'hunting' idle,  
so I tightened them up by hand and there was no difference.  Once  
tight, I backed them off about a turn and there still was no  
difference.  I left them like that.

Why not mess with the one with the slotted head?  I've never heard that
