    The idle screw is a screw that comes out of the carb at an angle. It has a little spring on it.

    im not looking over it. look at pictures of the engine ull see there is none. there is no hold for it as if it was missing. theres only three screws. the high end the low end and the mid range.

    Looked on the Trinity site couldnt really find anything on your engine other than saying that it has a h/s and m/s . That thing has got to have a idle screw didnt you get a instruction sheet or do your home work before you decided to buy it?

    I'm lost then , I just cant imagine that one of those screws doesnt have something to do with the idle, thats like the first adjustment you need to do when tuning a carb. that mid . screw has got to be it. can youstart the rc and try it or look down the throat and adjust that way?

    Ya, take off your air filter (with engine not running) and peek down the carb. Try adjusting all the screws and the one that rotates the barrel should be it. Thats the only way I can think of that you can find out which screw controls idle adjustment.
