2003 700 idle screw

cleaned my carb and adjusted my throttle cable so it had a little play in it, went to start and it wouldnt idle, so I went to go adjust it and there's no idle screw there! Does anyone know what size bolt it is? hardware store is right next to my house and isnt open til monday but I figured if someone knew the thread size I would rig somethin up. Any help appreciated, thanks!

idle screw should be on left side , under carb, about 1/2 inch knob stickin down, may have to remove side cover and get a light to find it the first time

I had the carb off and completely disassembled, and no sign of it. I know where it should be and have the service manual just isnt there. So i'm needing to rig something up
