Ford 3000 gas Holley carb rebuild

My first post!
I just got the Ford 3000 a week or so ago. It had been sitting a good bit, maybe 5 hours of use over the last couple of years. So its running a little rough, poping and so forth. I am going to give it a good going over and tune up. The problem I am having is finding a source for instructions on rebuilding the carb. My shop manual doesn't have much at all, kind of disappointing. Maybe I am just over thinking it. I have done several carb rebuilds over the years and it seems I would normally have some basic instructions with the rebuild kit. Mine came with just the parts. Where do I start with the mix screw, one turn out? and so forth....

3rd tractor 1966 Ford 3000 gas
2nd tractor Yanmar 2000 (hated it,sold it after 3 weeks)
1st tractor 1948 Ferguson TE-20 (loved it)
Non-tractor project a 1969 Chevy C-10

Keep it simple and be debt free!

Re: Ford 3000 gas Holley carb rebuild

I usually start with a turn and a half out on both screws to get it to start start then adjust from there after I get it up to temp.

Social media is a cesspool of questionable human behavior.

Even duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound!

The biggest lie I tell myself is "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."
