So there seemed to be a problem with the movement on the boost pin
So I popped the top back off to find the arm inside that first looked the
same was slightly different and did not hold tension on the boost pin,

Should give enough fuel on mine as the boost pin moves a good 4mm :) and that acts on the same point as the fuel mixture and you only need to turn that in 360 deg to make a big difference that's only 1.5mm approximate :)
