I've never had the chance to play with one of these carbs, and I'm not sure if the procedure is the same, but this procedure applies to most idle mixture screws.

Warm up the engine and make sure the choke is fully open. Hook up a vacuum gauge to manifold vacuum.
Turn off the engine.
Turn both idle mixture crews in until they lightly bottom out.
Turn each one out one and a half turns. It it won't start and run, turn the mixture screws out more. Make sure you do the same amount for each screw.
Start the car back up and set your idle speed using the idle speed screw.
Adjust the idle mixture screws the same amount, I usually start with half turn on each one, until you have the highest vacuum you can get.
Then readjust your idle speed with the idle speed screw.
Cool, thanks
