high needle needs to be 2 1/4 turns open from closed,low needle 1 1/8 open from closed.dont screw in too tight when closing them.this is a good starting point for the needles then id close the high one a bit at a time 1/8 turn at a time till she runs better.thats what i started mine at anyway after advice given,mines a 28 cc weedy with a walbro wa167 carb.

Are you sure you put the gaskets back in right side up? Those little flappy things on the gasket act as check valves to stop it from flooding. They won't seal properly if installed upside down or the tinyest amout of dirt or grease gets under them.
