Mariner 25hp tick over

Hi All, can anyone tell me where the tick-over adjustment screw is on my engine? A Mariner 25hp two stroke. I'm guessing it's at least 8 years old. It's running way too fast at the moment. Thanks.

Side of the carb, it has a spring on it. Not to be confused with the mixture screw that also has a spring which goes into the carb. Idle speed screw is on the throttle stop mech.

Should have asked the original owner - he might just have known

Why didn't I think of that....! It's running a bit rough at the moment, so I'll have to find a mechanic in the Swansea area to give it a proper service over the winter. I've heard that Quick-Fit are good, can't get better they say!
