Somethings up with this Edelbrock carb of mine. Car smells rich. I started to turn the air fuel mixture screws in to lean it and was surprised they only went in about 3\4 turn before bottoming out. I left both screws bottomed and the car ran like I didn't do anything. What am I missing?

Too much throttle plate opened, either primary or secondary, or a minute vacuum leak.

I have one of these carbs on my MCSS and it idles down to 600 rpm, the idle mixture screws stalls the engine when seated. Also does the same at 1000 rpm, stalls when seated.
