It's just in front (engine side) of the large plug on the bottom of the float bowl. It's up inside the little hole in a vertical(slightly diagonal) position. You'll need a small short screwdriver(flat head) to stick up the hole. You'll also need to remove the fuel screw to take the float bowl off(I forgot to mention that before).

I don't think there's an exact amount of turns, but of course, the further out you go, the more chance there is of it falling out. I'd say no more than four turns, and you could plug the hole up with some "blue-tac" to help the fuel screw stay put.
