the mixture screws are on top of carbs with springs around the thread of screw, sounds like the other screws you mention are jets, and if so they should be screwed in carbs, and left alone. Smiley

Hi Richard,
Have a look at these from my Fulvia series 1 Manual, they might help or you could have a look at Andrea Nistri's write up on www.viva-lancia.com
