Thanks, I found it this morning just before going to work. I gave it a half turn out and the 
wife noticed no difference. Tonight maybe I'll try it out a bit... too hot here right now - 
about 30C. Why not remove the stop sleeve? I assume that's to prevent too much fuel? I 
tried to turn it in, but the sleeve stopped it after about 1/8 turn, so I assume this meant I 
was near max fuel (according to factory). This is original engine, but pump was replaced 
by dealer years ago, possibly under warranty.
