So I bought the special tool for adjusting the mixture on the Strombergs. But I can’t get it to turn. Is there something that needs to be loosened first? The tool goes in and I can feel the outer part click into the groove to keep the diaphragm from turning. But then the allen wrench part won’t turn. I twisted it pretty hard but I’m afraid to break something.
As a test I tried it on set of spare carbs I have in a box and it turned easily. I read on the Buckeye Triumphs site that earlier 175s were not adjustable on the Triumphs. Is it possible the Strombergs on my car are the earlier kind where the mixture is not adjustable? Were those ever fitted to the Jensen-Healeys?
