shorter screwdriver

ok, I need a flathead screwdriver that is short enough to adjust the front cylinder carb. Nothing I have will fit. Any suggestions and where to get it?

Grace and Peace to you!

I got mine at the dollar store. You can also grind an old one to fit.

Is this for the mixing screws?

yup used a really long skinny air/fule mixture screw driver.. exactly what the tool catolouge said it was for.. they also make flexible shaft screwdrivers that I hae used with a little less luck, but they still work.

Are you sure you're trying to turn the right screw?
