Default 1979 Honda CB750K Carbs. Air/Fuel Mixture Screws

I just installed a rebuild kit into the carbs on my 1979 Honda CB750K 4 cylinder. I bought the bike used about 3 weeks ago from a neighbor. I watched it sit in front of his house for 1 year so I sinally saw him out side and struck a deal to buy it off of him. The bike only has 7,200 original miles on it. But the carbs were gummed up from sitting for so long. Before I started to install the rebuild kits I checked the Air Fuel Mixture screws and 1 of the screws was 2 turns out. 1 of the screws was 4 1/4 turns out 1 screw was 3 turns out ect. My question is, where would a good starting point be(turns out) for the air /fuel mixture screws? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I bought a Original 1979 Honda Repair Manual on line. It says for my model of carbs, Keihin VB42A the starting point is 1 1/2 turns out. Kiehen VB4C is 1/34 Turns out for starting point. That is straight out of the 1979 Honda Repair Manual.
If you have any questions that might be in the original repair manual, ask me Ill try to get back to you with an answer within 24 hours.

Hey that's awesome that you responded incase anyone else ever needs to find it. Alot of info like that is just about impossible to find without a manual. The sad part is sometimes original manuals can be harder to find on these older bikes.
