Irelands child Get your instruction book out that came with the carb - or if it has disappeared, Edelbrock has it posted on line:

It can be confusing so you do need to spend some time understanding what does what.

RWENUTS It's about timing!
SEt your timing at 12* and hook your vacuum pot up to manifold vacuum. Slow your idle back down and you'll have the carb back in sync. Rich smell is caused by uncovering the idle transfer slot too much and getting into the power circuit too soon.
