Like said by the Doctor himself, a general rule of thumb is to turn all the jets out 1 1/2 turns out for first run, and then adjust them as it is running.

Yeah, I did that. Now it won't run at all! It was running pretty good with the choke 1/2 closed. Had an intake gasket leak. I fixed that. fired it up, same thing. So I figured "adjustment". Wrong! Nice spark though. I ordered a rebuild kit.
