help, bringing a Holley carb back to factory settings

Kind of a dumb question but is there a way to bring a Holley Carb back to factory. I played around with the screw settings on the side and now the car runs too rich. Is there a way to get it back to the factory settings?

Screw the mixture screws in until they seat lightly. Turn them 1 and 1/2 turns out. This is about where they start out. If it is just running rich, try turning them in at 1/4 turn at a time with the engine running and see if the idle changes. If it increases, go a bit more until the engine stumbles and starts to die, then back them out about 1/8 turn.
