You have to look at the position of the throttle lever in order to set the low needle. The mark on the throttle lever needs to be almost half way between closed and the first of the 3 center marks. Then you set your low needle so that it doesn't cut off when you pull the glow driver and it isn't running a high RPM for idle.

The low needle is used to set the idle throttle position. The idle throttle position is as I previously described so that the Midrange is not lean.

Hope this helps...
