On some of the old OMC motors (Evinrude, and Elto) I had, I can remember both being 1.5 to 2 turns out as a start point before fine tuning the adjustments. Perhaps that old Gale is similar.

I agree with Equinox on the initial settings. I remember my old 1955 Johnson 10 hp. Cranked every time I told it to. I do remember I had to remove the stops in order to gain the initial setting. Then once it settled down, I could return the stops to a mid point and have some adjustment left. Not sure if yours has them or not.
People at the local OMC school offered me $500 for it one time in trade for a new motor.....new motor at $2k, give me a break. I kept my old one.

Sounds like everything is now falling into place. You may find that you will need to lean it a little at high speed under load, but that is also normal. Good luck.
