there should be 1 under the needle clip,you can use those to fine tune needle clip positions.they are .030thick and a needle clip position is .040 so by rearranging them you can get 1/2 a clip position,be careful changing them without thinking which way you are moving the needle,the ones on top dont matter at all as far as changing the clip position but the ones underneath do as they are physically moving the needle

washers under the e-clip will raise the needle, which will make things richer. It's also a good idea to have at least one washer under the clip to keep the clip from contacting the slide, as the slide is aluminum and the clips are steel. If you allow the clips to rest on the aluminum slide, you will get corrosion...

if you take 1 washer from the side with 2 under the clip, it will lean that side by 3/4 of a clip position,washers on top dont count they are just holding the needle from any movement,does that side look to be running richer than the side with 1 clip,taking that 2nd washer out will lean that side down so be sure you have enough room to lean it down
