Default Extend adjustment carburetor adjustment (low and hi) screw outside the cowl ?

Hello!

Is there is a way to extend the 2 (DLE 55) carburetor screws (low and hi mixture) outside the airplane cowl ? They are like 4 inches inside the cowl and itís nearly impossible to reach them without removing the cowl (and therefor the prop).

Thanks!

Take two pieces of nyrod outer sheath or straws or something and glue it inside to guide a screw driver to the heads.

And get a long straight slot, it comes in handy
