Anyone know how many turns out the screws need to be set at on a Carter Carb?

What year? Are you trying to set the idle speed or the mixture?

1980 CJ7 with the 258 6 in it. What are the settings for both. I don't know too much about engines, I know there are 2 screws on the front of the carb. Is one for mixture and one for idle? If so which one is which and what are the settings. Thanks.

Ok, if you're looking at the front, there should be a circular caover over the choke. At the bottom of the carb are two screws, one with a spring on it. Are those the ones you're looking at? The one with the spring is the idle speed screw. The other should be the idle mixture screw. To adjust them, you'll need a vacuum gauge and a tach. But before you do that, take a look at these:
