Question Wisconsin carb adjustment?

Does anyone know what the initial settings are on a TRA-10D. It has the bendix/zenith carb.

Exclamation Re: Wisconsin carb adjustment?

Try 11/2 turns out on the main adjustment (bottom of carb), and 1 turn out on the idle mixture, Idle speed (the one on the throttle), back off until plate cannot close any further, turn in 3 turns. Start engine and adjust idle speed to about 800 RPM. Let warm up, open throttle, and adjust high speed mixture until engine runs its best - back out 1/8 turn. Let engine idle, adjust for best running, adjusting idle speed and mixture. After each adjustment, let engine run for a minute or 2 to clear up after re-setting.
