w123 mixture adjusting problem

hi guys i have w123 m115 stromberg cd 175 when i try to lean the mixture by tightening the screw under the fuel bowl it stay rich or make a very slight change in the mixture and splutters on very low rpm i sent the car to a mechanic and he adjust it in 5 min but the acceleration is weak and again when i try to adjust it it didn't make a big difference and the screw became heavy in some turns and became ligh again so what is the problem?

make sure that the rubber diaphram in the carb is not cracked. That will cause weak acceleration and mixture issues.
