    Which way do you need to turn the idle mixture screws to lean a carb out? I think it is inward correct.

    I need to lean out the idle mixture on my 2bbl (holley knockoff I think) carb on my Jeep. It is a '73 with 304 V8. I adjust both idle screw in to lean the carb out some correct? Thanks

    P.S. I am doing this and some other work right now so the sooner the answer the better. Thanks

    only affects idle though
    as soon as the throttle plates open a fraction it no longer feeds from the transfer slots
