2715e Ford Diesel engine Idle Speed Adjustment

Not sure if this has been covered before but am looking for some advise on how to adjust the Idle Speed on my 2715e Ford Diesel Engine. It is a Watermota marinisation but don't think this is really relevant. Any help gratefully received

10mm socket and extension. The adjustment bolt is between the engine and the injector pump. 2 screws, one is idle, one is max rpm. 650 rpm tops.

I understand that you cannot 'Thank' more than once on the same thread so I am replying. Today I got into the engine room, found the idle speed adjustment screw, as you described & adjusted the speed accordingly & all is now well again. Thank you once more for your invaluable help
