85 280ce idle adjustment

When my car warms up it won't idle high enough to stay running. I think this can be fixed just by turning up the idle a little bit but I don't know how and my repair book doesn't tell me. It seems to run great other than this idle problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The idle air screw is located aft & to the right of the ignition distributor, and just in front of the #1 cylinder intake runner. The screw head is 1/2-5/8" in diameter. CCW increases idle speed.
