no o-rings or washers on air screw

Post by tprender » Mon Oct 22, 2012 10:12 pm

I came across an '86 that had been setting for 4 years for a good price with low miles. First thing that I did was change the fuel lines before I even tried to start it, could only get it to idle with the chock on. So, I have taken the carbs off to clean them. Not as dirty as I though they would be. One of the slides was not moving and 2 of the slow jets was clogged. But, when I went to take out the air screws on the side, 3 of them came right out the 4th has a cap or there is no air screw there. But, the question that I am asking is that I found no washer or o-ring on the 3 screws that I took out, just springs. The Haynes book that I have shows them in the picture in the book. Did the '86 not have them or has these been taken apart already? Also, 2 of the screws were 4 turns out and the other was only 1 1/2 turns out. When I put it together I will set them at 2 turns out. Do, I need to take the cap off of the 4th one and see if there is a air screw under the cap or let sleeping dogs lie?
