Might help, might not, but a good place to get you in the ballpark. Regardless, if you can get it running out of the box that will make adjustments that much easier.

I'm not sure if you ordered an OEM part or a chinese knockoff but the aftermarket carbs always require a little tuning in my experience.
A Chinese knockoff. Saved me 50 bucks from buying an Echo OEM. Yay!!! I'll save the money!!
