Hello,
Okay, I need to adjust the fuel mixture screws at the base of the stock Q-Jet. Someone has got to make a flexible shaft driver that fits the rectangular screw heads on the Q-Jet, but who??

Or does anyone have one that they would be willing to rent to me for a few weeks??

Thanks,

Lanny,
The tool you are looking for is made by Thexton. All the major tool dealers carry it. Snap-on, Mac, Matco, Cornwell. Stop by any garage and ask a mechanic who his tool dealer is. Then ask for his phone number. You should be able to call up the toolman and chase him down.
Do you have an old analog dwell meter? You will need one to set the mixture. There is also one more mixture valve that will need to be adjusted.

Yes I have an old dwell meter to set the power piston I believe it's called. This is when you set the dwell meter for a 6 cy and connect to the green connector behind the A/C compressor.

Thanks for the info for the carb tool, I'll start calling around.
