Customer Question

I went to do a periodic run on my portable generator and found fuel spurting out a hole in the side. Turns out my idle set screw mysteriously got up and walked off. I finally got a new one in (after a months wait) but have no idea how to install it. Any clues?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Small Engine Technician should know?
Customer: Do you have the make and model numbers I sent previously?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Okay it's been 35 hours and still no help. If I was connected to a small engine tech it completely escaped my notice. When may I expect an answer, either by email or by text?
