    first step is to richen the needle & maybe raise the float level to see how it runs then - checking for air leaks at the intake is always good too

    go in the direction that lifts the needle out of the hole more - for float level, with the carb upside down, you should see the main jet just barely peeking up thru the float, bend the tangs so it sits up a bit higher (without letting the float hit the end of the tickler rod)

    doing this is easy and can easily be put back while giving you more info about how the mixture is doing
