Seems to be metric, maybe a M4 or M6 , just go to hardware store a purchase some, they are cheap... then come back and tell us what size it is, because I searched the internet all around for it and there is no info about it, only the part number P-N 27130-90

If you are talking about the idle screw (not idle mixture) I haven't found it yet.
I measured mine at .154" with a 36 TPI (36 matches to a #8 screw)
But the standard OD on a #8 is .164".
I don't have a metric scale but converting I get 3.9116mm.
So I don't have an answer, just relaying what I measured.
But the carb was made in Japan, most likely metric.
I'd try a M4 x 0.7 (standard OD is .157")

It's definitely an M4. I replaced mine with a stainless steel one. I used a 25mm cheesehead screw, and shortened it to 21½mm long.

That's metric coarse thread: 0.7mm pitch.

Scrounging through some parts drawers I found an extended adjuster screw
and never did bother measuring so still don't know what size it is. .
