Plunk, there is no such thing as a factory carb setting for any glow engine.

Why? Because the owners live at different altitudes with different humidity and different temperatures. Furthermore, they use different sized props, different glow plugs and burn different fuels. To go a little further, some engines are mounted upright, some on their sides and yet others are mounted inverted. As if all of the preceding wasn't enough, some model manufacturers even have the nerve to mount their fuel tanks at different heights.

Just open it up to 1.5 to 2.0 turns and adjust it until it runs good.
