jawa carb help please.

Yesterday I had nothing better to do so I decided to try and bring the jawa to life. Well it came to life, but is still half dead.

The engine started and ran, but ran slowly, even after I opened the throttle as far as it would go it seemed to be going barely faster than idle speed.

I know that gas is getting to the carb, I checked the float needle and fuel shutoff valve.

I need to adjust the air/fuel ratio and idle speed. Which screw on the carb does what?

Somebody out there has to know how to adjust a jikov carb.
