I'm not sure you can... or at least this newb couldnt... but if you are trying to do it on the cheap like i was... I made sure mine was returnable if it didnt "fit" right... and yep, 3 hours later i came back because it "didnt' fit right"
I never use a tach.
I use a vacuum gauge hooked up to a direct vacuum port on the carb. Adjust your curb idle screws one at a time (try 1/8th turn on each equally a little at a time) until you have the highest vacuum reading.
Make sure engine is at operating temp before you start any adjustments and take your time.
