A single bolt under the dissy that goes into the block. It has a wishbone "washer" under it. Its either 1/2 " or 9/16".

Probably 1/2".  There is a special wrench to loosen and tighten.  That bolt should only need a 1/2 a turn to move the dissy. Mark the base and engine block to see where you started, incase you want to return to where you were. A timing light is useful here.
Thanks for the info, it was a 1/2" sounds a lot better now. I'll probably have to go back thru the carb tune process as it's a bit out of wack again. Putting it in gear after I first turn it on and move it to low idle kills it, but any attempt to lower idle causes the engine to stutter, putting it in gear now you hear a loud thunk from the diff. I think it's at too high of idle but I can't check until I get my tach in.
