Help identifying the air/fuel screw. Pics Included.

I took a few pics, I believe the air-fuel screws are the ones above the hose with a cap that has a greenish tinge, but can never be too sure so I'm posting pics for verification. Thanks!

That looks like the one. It should be a soft metal cap or plug covering the screw.
Here is a picture from the gallery:

Couldn't get the plugs to pop off, I drove a screwdriver in and went to pry and bent the screwdriver but no luck with the plugs... Any advice?

The caps are aluminum, and they are the ones under the hose in the picture. I tried to drill mine, but couldn't get the right angle to do it, so I took a flat bladed screwdriver and small hammer, and broke the flange around the bottom of the plug, and pried the cap out. Took a little time, but I was able to remove them w/o hurting the carbs any.

Dont drill above the vacuum hose!!!!! That greenish looking thing is the end of the rod that your butterfly valve sits on.

NO No That is not the air/fuel screw. The screw is just below the vacuum hose. In the picture of the left side the hose clamp is covering it. It faces downward.

I just took a blade screwdriver that was smaller than the actual cap and I hammered on it. The cap isn't very hard, so I drove the screwdriver right through the middle and just pulled it out. No damage to the carb at all, didn't even touch it.

Also, do you think that I wouldn't have to adjust the screws out as far to compensate for elevation???

Canon is over 5,000ft and the Springs is over 6,000, can go up quite a bit higher than that (like 8,000 all the way up to 11,000ft) but not too often
