Rick
Would help to be more specific about which brand and models for that engine. Is it glow or gasoline and what size and carb type?
Edit!
Should have read the title better Glow engines have a simple carb so it depend a lot on your set-up,most manufacturers give basic instructions about initial setting. Here is something from K&B(but it apply for other engines too):
