The mixture screws may or may not be accessible on that carb. if it is a holley remanufactured carb, they likely are. They are located on the front of the carb in the base plate. Initial setting is 1.5 turns from all the way in. Other than that, the idle speed screw is located just above the primary throttle shaft on the driver side of the carb. It has a spring behind it and can be seen in the picture you attached.

That's a bout it for adjustments besides tearing things down.

What is it doing that you want to adjust?
