    most do not require a gap to idle, (my 34pj does)
    see what it does when installed and running, adjust airscrew for highest idle, then adjust idle.
    but no gap is common

    Better fat than fried. If it's not babbleing or bogging it's a good enough place to start. At least if it gets colder you'll be safe. Do you have 360 in now, or is that where you are going to start? If you still have tors "brick" on carb, pull the covers off and make sure both cables are seated corectly.
