The transfer slot can be set w/the carb off the engine. The drawing shows what you'll see w/the carb upside down, looking up at the transfer slot from the intake plenum.

So don't set the transfer slot by looking down from the air horn towards the throttle plates. Instead set it by turning the carb over and look at the slot from "underneath".
