Homelite Mighty Lite Gas Blower Model UT08550

Product starts fine but won't run much off choke. Told I need to adjust carb screws. Carb screws require a very thin walled socket with a notch in it to fit size of carb screws. Researching Online it shows several different Homelite Carb Adjusting tools.....apparently one size fits all does not work for Homelite.

Can someone point me to the correct Carb adjusting screw tool for the Ut 08550 Mighty Lite gas Blower and where I can purchase it? (I have seen "D" type, Pac-man type, etc)

This link may not be the tool you need but they have several, or you can be creative and use a "make do" to get the screws out and the cut a slot in them with a dremel for a flat blade. Have a good one. Geo
