OS 18 what? CV-R, TM, TZ?

18 CV-R:
11G Slide Carb:
LSN: 1.5 turns in from flush
HSN: 2 turns out from bottom

Don't see anything in the manual for the rotary...

OS18TM:
11K Slide carb
LSN: Flush with throttle arm.
MSN: .5 turns in from flush with carb body
HSN: ? (can't find it in the manual, would guess flush with top of the HSN housing. My 18TM is about .5-1 turn in from flush.

OS 18TZ:
Slide carb 11K
LSN: Flush with throttle arm.
MSN: .5 turns in from flush with carb body
HSN: 2 turns out from the bottom (found in the TZ manual... c'mon OS... get it straight!)

Rotary Carb 11L:
LSN: flush with housing
HSN: 2 turns out from the bottom (found in the TZ manual... c'mon OS... get it straight!)
