Default ASP 46 - where is the low speed mix needle?

I bought a second-hand plane with an ASP 46 engine. The low speed mix is a little rich according to my beginner instincts

Where is the low speed mixture needle?

On the engine, the high speed needle is offset from the carb to the rear. In front rear of the carb is the idle speed adjustment (I incorrectly assumed this was the low speed mixture setting until now) which is a normal flat point screw. Below the carb there are some alan keys on either side, but these don't seem to affect anything (I suspect these are todisassemblethe engine)

If you could point me to the manual, it would be much appreciated!

Also, what type of fuel would you suggest? I currently use normal mix with no nitromethane (not sure what this is called). Also, what types of glow plugs would you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Did you look in the center of the throttle arm?
There's a flat slotted screw in there
