I'm definately no carb expert, but just about every person i've ever known adjusts their choke by feel and sound, and adjust the air/fuel ratio by how the car feels when it's driven, and more importantly by frequently checking the spark plugs until they get it right.

depending on the carb, there will be a factory spec as to where the fuel should be in the bowls, start w/ that. as far as the choke, make sure its opening up wll the way when the car is up to temp, then try and tweak the idle screw till its w/in idle specs. make a few runs, then check the plugs, and then have fun w/ the trial and error part
