Note that metering-block style carbs such as Holley and Demon more often have one or 2 mixture screws in each metering block depending on the number of venturi. Also those may not be located at the bottom of the carb as in factory carburetors.

I have heard of some repair shops charging 70 bucks to adjust the choke on older carburetor equipped engines. Save your money, Its a very easy adjustment. I also forgot to mention there are notches on the choke housing. If your choke is adjusted properly, you shouldn't have to pump the accelerator any more then 2 or 3 times to start the engine, and the engine shouldn't stall out once it fires over.
