carb questions

Others here have more knowledge than I, but:

1. Use the original springs, not the kit springs.  Lots of people had
issues with the kit springs.

2. I'd go back to the stock 2.5 turns and tune from there.

3. Are those nipples the ones for the carb synch hoses?  Yes or no,
they should be at least covered.

Also, I didn't notice these before, but there are 2 plastic nipples, one between 1 and 2 and one between 3 and 4.  They aren't hooked up to anything I can tell.  Seems weird and just wanted to know if they were supposed to be wide open like that.
