    I'm not sure on the Edelbrock, but on a regular Chevy Carb. I was told to put the screws all the way in and back it off 1 & 1/2 turns.

    When I brought my truck in for a professional tune up, they said nothing needed to be adjusted on the carb.

    That should get you going, at least in the ballpark!

    Turn M in then out 1.5 turns, then go and smell the exhhuast for 30 seconds if your eyes are bloodshot after that then turn M out another 1/2 turn. usually when it runs smooth at about 800 rpm you got them close.
