they should be on the bottom front
under the carb.
The older ones had them on the side
under the throttle cable plate.
Yours will be fuel screws going
in from the bottom as #5 in this picture:

Always check how many turns they are set
at by lightly turning them in and then out,
and counting the turns.
This way you can reset them as original
if necessary.

If they are capped, you will have to
remove the carbs to drill the plug
part way (2-3mm) and inserting a wood screw
to pull the plug out with pliers.
Drilling too far in can damage the screws.
