Refreshing to read a post where the OP has done his homework.:)

You know your ride and should trust your instincts with regard to the blue pipes and the slight popping. It would be a big job at this time of year to recheck float settings which should eventually be done.

For the time being crank open the pilots another 1/2 turn which should richen slightly throughout entire RPM range so long as it still idles well. Give her a ride and see what you think.

I am a firm believer that carb equipped vehicles need to be slightly richer than when new to counteract the crummy Ethanol fuel of today.

If you can turn the pilots out like 1 turn and have no change in idle it is for sure lean and you are at maximum pilot adjustment.

Just make sure the screws are not so loose they could fall or vibrate out.:)
