My method:
Remove air cleaners.
Start motor.
Look in to carbs and see dashpot heights.  You can see if they are subtley 
different.  This is more accurate than listening.
Adjust idle screws to make them even.
Check mixtures with lift pins; just lift a little.  Adjust (in the famous 
Rover book words).
