Those are both idle mixture adjustments since it is a two barrel carb. At idle
take one side at a time turn it in until it runs really bad and then back it out until it
straightens out, repeat on the other side. Now go thru the same drill again and you should get it to run nice and smooth. You could also turn both screws in lightly against
the seat and back them out 1 1/2 or 2 turns for a starting point.

Connect a vacuum gauge to an intake vac port and adjust like the above post states. Optimum adjustment will be at the highest achieved vacuum reading on the gauge.
