How do you adjust idle on 1st Gen Prelude??

I promise this is one of my last questions for a while!...hopefully! Can anyone tell me how to adjust the idle on a first gen Prelude? Mine is idling at about 3,000 rpms, and I am confused when looking at the carb! It is not like my Oldsmobile! Lol

Thanks,
Joe

The idle speed screw is in the center of a black, fluted knob on the lower part of the carb assembly. Don't even ask about adjusting the mixture...that's two pages in the shop manual, and there's two different screws to mess with.

you should almost never have to adjust the idle screw its on top of the throttle body and is a flat head screw but the only reason you should move it is if you have some serious mods. I'd look at other things before messing with the idle screwhave you taken off and cleaned you IACV and adjusted you Fitv? actually confirmed you dont have a vacuum leak? does your idle always stay high or just warm or just cold?
