The gib screws are the tiny set screws along the side. The gib is the brass strip that puts pressure on the dovetail. It should be tight enough to be firm but not too tight. You should not have to force the crank handle to move the carrage. There should also be some form of adjustment around the shaft of the crank handle. Take it apart and look it over. I don’t have time to take mine apart tonight and look at it but I will take a look tomorrow evening.
