    Default baseline carb adjustment

    My idle has gone away, and I'm having the peddle the throttle to keep it running. What went wrong? Now I've played with the adjustments and figured I have it all F'd up. Taking the carb apart and blowing it all out.

    Where should I startd on the idle setting and air bleeds?

    496" 13.6-1 1150 Dominator

    make sure you r opening the primary and secondary blades both at idle, as 2 much opening will uncover transfer slots and mess it up. Figure about 1 turn from butterflys full shut to begin with, mixture screws on dominator, 1/2 to 3/4 turn out from bottom should be really close there. Stock airbleeds to start, you should have it start and run before u mess with airbleeds as you can mess it up pretty good changing bleeds if you dont know where to go with sizes and have not done a bunch of carbs. Oh make sur you have enough initial timing in it so not as to open the butterflys to much as well...
