Q-jet question

Ok So I have a 1967 chevy impala with an almost stock rebuilt 350 sb. It has abd edelbrock preformer intake and had a preformer carb, but while changing the jets the carb broke. So I but on the q-jet I had lying around, the car starts but idles extremely high. Now I have pluged all the unnecessary air lines, I just need to know where are the idle screws, the air and fuel mixture screws are and also how to properly tune the carb. Any help in the form of knowledge or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a link to a rather large pic. It's shows where the idle speed screw is.

The mixture screws are located on the lower front. You can see one of them in Coldknock's pic, the brass colored item just to the left of the idle speed screw. Some of the Q-jets need a special tool.
