Screw them both to seat, then 1-1/2 for both high and low should get you running, then adjust from there. While running at WOT set high so it runs the best, then back off the high until it starts to sound a little like a 4- cycle. Adjust the low to get it to run as fast/smooth as you can get it, then adjust the idle screw to where the idle is so you like it. Have a good one. Geo
