Turn on the engine of the car and keep it working, till the car is at its normal operating temperature.
Now, turn off the engine and remove the air filter cover, base and filter, to expose the carburetor.
You will find the idle adjustment screw located below the fast idle cam, which rocks on a spring-loaded hinge. It is attached to the throttle cable.
Start the car again and tighten the idle adjustment screw, one-half turn (clockwise).
If the car idles roughly or conks out, screwing it in will increase the idle speed.
After adjusting the idle, wait for atleast 30 seconds.
Next, check the tachometer of the car, on the dashboard, to check the RPMs.
Loosen the screw half a turn, or until the idle is where you want it to be. Remember that unscrewing the idle adjustment screw decreases the idle speed.
After you have adjusted the speed, replace the filter assembly of the car and close the hood.

How to Adjust a Carburetor Air and Fuel Mixture
Shut off the engine and open the hood of the car.
Unscrew the wing nut on top of the air filter and then, remove the filter. You do not need to disconnect any hoses connected to it.
The part into which air filter was screwed is the carburetor. Check out the screws on the lower-front section of the carburetor.
With the help of a flat-head screw driver, turn both screws to the right. Continue doing this till they are tight.
Now, loosen each screw, one at a time.
Now, replace the air filter assembly and start the car.
