If the idle screws have the "double-D" or hex-shaped heads, slot them for a straight blade screwdriver before installing them- OR- get an idle screw adjustment screwdriver w/the different bits that include the Q-jet screw heads. The tool also has the added benefit of a flexible shaft to allow you to keep away from the fan and belts.

Double-D screw

Idle mixture adjustment tool
