Quadrajet Idle Adjustment tool ? ?

Our streetrod had a 350 SBC with a Rochester Quadrajet carb. The idle circuit adjustment screws have the ends that look like the blade of a screw driver sticking out. I have seen a slick little tool that fits right in the proper spot to adjust. Doesn't anyone know if that tool is available at NAPA or any other location... As always..... THANKS.... THERESA

I got mine at WalMart, but they're available at NAPA, auto zone, advance... Pretty much anywhere that sells automotive tools.

I made mine from a piece of steel brake line. Cheap and simple, but effective.

I just got it in the automotive section near the other tools. I think it was near the oil filter wrenches. Came with 6 bits for different carbs.

Doc here,

I get mine at NAPA ..about $21.00 if I remember..

Before that I used rubber vacuum hose , smaller than the jet "body" sprayed with carb cleaner and quickly pushed over the jet screw..worked good most of the time.

Oops, my mistake...you were talking about the torx head idle speed adjustment screw...I used a piece of flattend brake line to adjust the mixture on the "sealed adjustment" carbs.
