I have a P-5 and it does not have a midrange needle the third screw sets the
idle. I don't have my engine manual with me now, but check the Houston
engine service thread.

My engine is a Novarossi 21-P5xs it's about 1-1/2 years old. I have three
other Novarossi engines and none of them have a midrange needle. You could
have the old P-5 and maybe it had a midrange needle, but I thought all nova's
had only two mixture needles, but I could be wrong. How old is your P-5 and did you buy it new?

usually around flush on hsn , lsn 4-4.5 turns out on lsn (slide barrel opened) about .7-1mm idle gap . if u havent touched the middle adjust leave it

if you have , put it flush with the carb body
