The hose with the filter in the tank is the pick up, the other is return. the pick up is usualy goes towards the middle pipe on the carby. if you get them around the wrong way it wont pick of fuel..
Screw the mixtures in untill they just bottom and screw them out 1 to 1.5 turns start up set low mix untill its just "four stroking" the set the high.

There should be one screw (I'm assuming it's the Carter YF carburetor 1 barrel) that's by itself away from linkages etc, more to center at base of carb where it meets manifold, that is angled approx 45 degrees going in to base. That should be your mixture screw. What symptoms are you experiencing anyway?

I always understood that the rule of thumb is to back out 2 1/2 turns. That is the starting point for any other adjustments, but if it still won't start, then the carb adjustment is not the problem. Check spark and fuel delivery.

This is not the original carburetor that came on the bike. The orignial was a Kehien "butterfly" carburetor. This carburetor is a later "CV" version with the large square looking top on it.
I'll tell you how to access the idle mixture screw on each model. The "butterfly" carb had it's idle mixture screw in a "tower" on top of the carb just forward of the carburetor mounting flange. The square topped "CV" carb has the idle mixture screw underneath the carb at rear of the float bowl.
They both came from the factory with an "anti-tamper" plug of about 3/16 inch diameter (5mm) pressed in over the adjuster screw so that the owner could not mess with the idle mixture.
To get access to the idle mixture adjustment screw, you must drill a small hole in the "anti-tamper" plug. Be very careful not to drill too deeply or you will damage the brass screw underneath the plug. Drill just enough to go through the plug with a small drill bit. Screw a sheet metal screw or start a tap in the hole. If you use the sheet metal screw, use a pair of pliers or something to pull the plug out. If you're using a tap, once you get the hole tapped screw a screw into the hole and use the pliers to pull the plug out.
If your bike will idle at all, start the bike up and allow the engine to warm up. If it won't idle, screw the idle mixture in until it just barely "bottoms" in the hole. Back it out 1 1/2 turns on the "butterfly" carb and about 3 turns on the "CV" carb and start the engine. Adjust the screw to obtain the highest smoothest idle. Then use the throttle stop screw to set the idle speed of the engine. Once you're finished, put a small dab of RTV sealant in the hole over the screw. If you don't do this, water will seep down by the fine threads permanently seizing the screw making it impossible to adjust the idle mixture in the future.
