NextGen Generator fuel screw adjustment

I have a 5.5kw NextGen Diesel Generator, Kubota engine. While swapping out the raw water pump I inadvertently adjusted the fuel regulator screw. (in an effort to get at the water pump mounting nuts).
On initial re-start the unit ran VERY slowly. Stopped and turned out the screw about three turns, re-start and it now seems to run okay with no obvious smoke or oily discharge from the exhaust. Can't believe I managed to get the setting right, does anyone know how to properly set this screw?
