If you are referring to the carb, it is adjusted by 'playing by ear'. Once is for the gas and the other is for the air. Move the screws quarter turns and observe. Take note how many movements are made so you can redo what you have done. Sometimes spraying carb cleaner helps.

2007 Chevy W3500 tiltmaster, headlights- Since purchasing the truck new, I have not been able to adjust the headlights properly.  Dealer supposedly replaced the right side assembly, but the lamp still flops around in the housing.  The owners manual shows a vertical and horizontal adjustment screw, but there seems to be only a horizontal adjustment, and the problem is with the vertical.  I was wondering if there is an older or another headlight assembly that would provide the proper adjustment.
