If I understand what part you are referring to, on my 1988 90q, it is 3 mm.
You may find it difficult to find a long allen wrench that size.  If you buy
a 1/8 inch T-handled one, you can use an abrasive wheel to take off a
smidgen at the end to get it to fit.  Note this  screw is for idle mixture
adjustment, and shouldn't be used for idle speed adjustment.  You may wish
to search for air leaks.
