Default 84 XJ6 S3 Idle adjustment for % CO

My 1984 XJ6 S3 last California smog check showed CO at “0”. To get to 2.5 % CO from 0, does anyone remember if the adjusting screw direction is CC ?;
and how much can be expected from 1 full turn? I won't see an Exhaust Gas analyzer for another 2 years.

See comments from Roger Bywater of AJ6 Engineering,

“Idle mixture on European cars is specified as giving 1-2 % CO, but these elderly engines seem rather happier at 2-3 %.”
