How are you determining the lean condition, lets hope not plugs. My qjet is one of the best carbs ever used. The idle screw is not touching the tab but the carb stays at 800rpm. Was a drill taken to the idle bleeds or idle ports, that would keep it running high. Is the choke operational. If not you could remove the choke linkage rod to check if it would baseline hot. 6-7 turns out is not the baseline.
