fuel pump runs with key on

[QUOTE=mark houghton;7985598]
The plug behind the fued distributor head is two-pronged and blue or green in color. Reach back with your left hand, shine a light back there and contort your face as close as you can get and you should be able to feel/see it. If unplugged, your pumps should run with the key in the on position. If plugged in, you have to move the air flow metering arm to get the pumps to run.

Mark,
My car starts and runs fine. I just have this problem with my fuel pump running with the key on. If the metering arm were adjusted too tight pushing on the air flow metering arm would this make the pump run with the key on?

My fuel mixture adjustment screw has this weird 5mm screw head either covering the 3mm screw or my adjustment is somewhere else. The black area under the screw is not a cover but just painted black. Some have said don't touch it but I might be tempted if this is keeping the pump running. Any Ideas?
