How to adjust the beam on my 05-07 harley headlights

I picked up my truck 1999.5 CC LB F350 DRW JGFNOVA couple weeks ago and getting comfortable with it. It came with the 05-07 harley headlight conversion. It looks great but at night the beam is way to low.

I have been running my high beams all the time and haven't been flashed one time. How can I adjust the beams up on these headlights? The low beams shine maybe 30-35 feet till the beam is completely lost.

I have a fass fuel system and regulated return w bowl delete waiting to be put in.

There should be an adjustment knob on top of the housing in my 05 lariat I believe it was white. Think you need either a wrench or screwdriver to adjust can't remember though.

It's like a reverse torx bit on top of the headlight towards the inner side of the light. Towards the center of the truck. Should be able to turn it with a pair of pliers if you don't have the correct socket.

4mm socket but only found one adjuster. How do you bring it in towards center ? My lights shine outward and I drive down a black hole.
