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.

As a matter of interest, the idle screw adjusters regulate fuel, not air.
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

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