SOURCE: Idle adjustment
If there is not a screw on the side of the carb then look at the top of the carb where the throttle cable connects. The fitting at the top of the carb is threaded and would adjust the carb idle. There may be a similer adjustment at the twist grip but I don't remember one there.
Hope you can rate this solution as a 'FixYa'

OOPS< I forgot to give the site for the manual. :)

SOURCE: leaks gas
the needle and seat in the carb isn't seating. First, shut off the petcock, and drain the fuel bowls with the screw on the bottom of the bowls. Let all the gas drain out of the bowls.Tap lightly on the carb with a small hammer, the refill the carbs, see if it still leaks. if it does, you need to pull the bowls off, remove the float and clean out the needle and seat, and put it back together

Shoot WD40 into each cylinder to get them wet.
Change gearbox oil and oil filter. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. How bad is the rust inside the gas tank? I would consider a liquid tank liner if rusted. Google “ kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html
