string trimmer carb adjustment

I have two trimmers, a Ryobi 700r and a Poulan Weedeater SST25. On each, they try to keep you from getting to the two carb adjustment screws, which I have overcome. After all, I bought them, and if I want to do my own adjustments, I should be able to. My question is which is the high and low on each? The Ryobi has a red plastic covering, and a clear. The red is farthest from the cylinder, and I think this is the high. The two on the Weedeater are side by side, parallel to the cylinder.

Generally the one closest to the air filter end of the carb is the high speed screw.

Thanks, Cheese. I have done the Weedeater, and found that to be the case. By the way, I just bought it factory reconditioned from Northern Tool. You would not believe how badly out of adjustment the two adjustment screws were.
