WITH AN 84 EMISSIONS SHOULDN'T BE an issue as depending on antique status in the state you live that can bypass the emissions

the mixture screws z24stang refers to were in the front in the base plate that were hidden behind knock outs that usually were crudely removed by a chisel, but IMO the stock carb isn't worth messing with as well as the stock POS INTAKE, I've had 3 of them and end up selling all 3 in favor of a better designed and flowing afternarket one, STOCK STUFF FTL AND if you like to be slower than the rest

The mixture screws are in the base plate of the carb. Unless you happen to see the well hidden plugs I can see how you might not realize they are there, but they are. These are good carbs when they work right. And you can either swap the bowls with regular 4160 bowls or tie the vents together with a piece of hose like I did on mine. But they are relatively expensive to rebuild compared to regular holleys. Mine had choke issues, and the idle kicker solenoid kept on sticking. After messing with it for about the billionth time I bought a regular vacuum secondary holley 600 and it's much easier to live with. But other than the idle and cold start issues the car pretty much runs exactly the same now.
