BGM Pro 10 spring clutch fitting

Anybody fitted one? What's the best practice for fitting the nut considering the tab washer can't be used? Loctite just?

Flat spot when warm

PHBL 'D' needles

Is there a commonly used range of D needles with an easy guide for lean to rich - like is available for the PHBH carb i.e X12 - X7 - X13 - X2 - X25 ?

I'm sitting too rich on a D29 on the top clip so don't know where to go - and I don't really understand the charts showing diameters and tapers lol.
