Default K&B .21 outboard tuning help

Hey guys I just came into possession of a k&b .21 outboard with throttle exhaust and I need some tuning advise. Which direction is lean and which is rich, what is a good starting point and any tips on fine tuning it?? Thanks for any help!

Turn the needle valve to the right for lean and left for rich. Try about 3 1/2 to 4 turns open to start.
