I would first use the idle mixture screws to compensate for the 2'ndary being tightened up. Only then use the idle speed screw.

Your idle mixture screws should have a larger range of adjustment than you've described, but that's neither here nor there at this point.

Adjust the 2'ndary blades tighter, then idle mixture screws, then idle speed- if needed. See where that leaves you.

After you get the idle where it's stable, work on the accelerator pump adjustments if the stumble is right off idle.
