    Adjustment screws tearing fingers apart...

    So, I took my polaris 750/780 conversion ski out today, and I got it to run alright as it was. But, when I tried adjusting the hi and low speed screws, it was hard to match the carbs because the screws would tear my fingers apart from trying to turn them (They are 785 carbs). Any suggestions on where I can find easier adjustment screws that wont tear my hand apart AND are easily turnable?

    Are they the Tee type or just the plain type?

    if they are not the t type pull them out and Jb weld some small stainless washers in the slots works very nice

    I use a Milwaukee Tools right angle driver with the Craftsman handle.
    Put a small flat bit into it and it fits in the tightest spaces.

    I think Im just going to use shaft collars and screw the allens down on the adjustment screws. I just need a larger area to grab and turn. Yes, they are the plain type, not the t-type....

    Exactly. Add the handle and you have a perfect screw adjustment driver. Although I did remove the "L" shaped part for tighter tolerances.
