    The brass slide in my carb has a vertical slot from top to bottom, 180 degrees on the other side of the slide is a notch in the bottom portion of the slide. Which is the proper placement, notched side towards idle screw, or slot side towards idle screw ( left side )? Searched the forum but couldn't find the answer. Funny thing is it ran in both positions, lol. Thanks in advance.

    Lol, someone answered this in a different thread just today.

    The idle screw pushes into the small angle notch. The long slit goes to the opposite side, you can see a bronze pin that guides it.

    wow finally someone looked in the carb and at the slide and figured out that it can go in 2 different ways, but only one way is correct.
    most people just jam the slide in any any way it'll fit, and then complain that they have no throttle response or idle adjustment.
    15 gold stars for you beepa!! lol
