asuming your carb.'s internal passages do not have some kind of foreign substances partially or totally blocking them, GENTLY screw all the way in till they "bottom"..than back out ONE AND A HALF TURNS. That should be pretty close, and also, if it dosnt work, tell you that it is time to fully dis-assemble and "boil out" your carb!
