The initial setting for the idle screws on a 75 is 1 3/8 out.

Thanks for your feedback. I have another question. I set the air settings and synced the carbs, it seems to run pretty good now but above 4K RPM's I don't seem to get any more power it just bogs down a little. My plugs are a little black and sooty so I am running rich. What is the best way to lean things out a little.

See your other thread on this subject. 2 threads on same subject is confusing.

As a matter of interest, the idle screw adjusters regulate fuel, not air.

...and the pilot air jet is screwed in to the elbow that the air line is on.
