80G/S carb setup

My carbs are all stock. All new rubber bits. Needles and jets look in new condition. Needles in stock position. EPA tubes removed and vac ports blocked.

What is the right starting point for the mixture screws? Haynes doesn't say.

Any other tips for having things right before starting this baby up?

Needles and floats seemed new. Must have been replaced at some point. Stock jets. I'll see how that goes and fiddle from there.

If you can't see or feel a half inch long worn spot on the jet needle just above the taper, you are probably fine. 135 mains work best. It might run better with 268 versus 266 needle jets! That and I hope you installed new enricher body gaskets. They suck in enough as it is let alone trying to re-use them!

Yeah I'll probably lean out the mains once I've gotten everything else working right. New gaskets on enrichener.
