The big silver knob to the left of center in your picture is the idle speed screw.

Underneath the carb, in front of the big cap, up in side a tube, is the fuel screw you are about to replace.

Be forwarned, many alloy fuel screws are poorly made (read that 95% of them).
They can require a much smaller pilot jet, the tip can jam and break off in the seat.
I only rec. brass or stainless steel ones.
