The normal position varies on your climate. In warmer weather you want it in position 1 or 2. In colder weather position 3 or 4. The 1960 shop manual shows the summer position as 2 (second from the bottom) with the rod in the outside hole of the accelerator pump lever. That's where I would put it in your case.
