On these carbs it's a "fuel" screw, so out for a richer mix (out for colder temps). If youi can't get enough adjustment with the fuel screw then you may need to go up a size or two on the pilot jet.

Out. You need to enrich the mixture a bit. Since the screw meters fuel, bacling the screw out makes it richer. Check this procedure out as a guideline:
