Question about Chevrolet El Camino
Remove the air cleaner
to access the carburetor.
Note the right side of the carburetor where the accelerator cable is connected.
The cable is connected to the accelerator cam which is stopped by the idle set screw.
The Idle adjustment screw head is pushing down on a spring, which should help Identify the correct adjustment screw.
Be careful not to adjust the smaller mixture screws, unless you have a vacuum gage.
If your Idle is too high you may get after run or knocking. I would set the timing then adjust the idle afterwards.
I hope this helps out since I do not know if the carburetor is stock or not.
