pinch it where you like.

try near the nipple, try an inch away from the nipple, you could try an inch away from the fuel tank if you want.

the closer to the nipple you pinch, the more it hurts.

Just go somewhere between 1 inch and the nipple and do it in the same place every time. Its not the time it takes to shut off its the sound it makes.
If the low speed needle is set correctly, the engine should increase rpm only slightly and then die.

If the engine increases several hundred rpm before dying, then the low speed needle is too rich and needs to be turned in.

If the rpm doesn't increase at all and the engine simply dies, the low speed needle is set too lean and should be richened or turned out.
