was thinking of removing it and just block. that way only have to adjust the needle valve.
the comsept is similar to an airplane engine.
Not sure what you mean but aero engines have a low rpm needle adjustment also. The only difference being it is so rarely touched people dont realise it is there. Its on the opposite side of the carb to where it would be on a car engine.
For a car engine you cant just remove a needle and block it off. The carb is designed to run in a certain way that requires the needle. Remove it and you will be constantly fighting with either too lean or too rich an engine (either runs fast or wont stay running).
