shift adjustment screw on TH350

Just a quick question on adjustment screw for TH350
I was able to turn the screw a little and it moved the shift point in the right direction but I'd like to do a little more but I couldn't easily turn the screw and didn't want to strip the head
Is there a lock nut or something which you need to loosen before adjusting? If so, what and where?
What kind of head is screw? a flat or phillips?
Thanks!
Ed

flat type screw driver.

you can take a piece of wire like a coat hanger.......cut off a piece of wire, pound the wire end flat. FILE it into the shape of a screw driver and use that to adjust the screw inside the modulator nipple where the hose plugs onto.

Which way do you turn the screw to up the shift point, Cros?

As you look at the nipple on the modulator , turn it clockwise.

this preloads the spring more.

I have turned the screw in so far that it unthreads. You can feel the screw skipping, then I backed it out 1 turn.

YMMV
