Don't know much about drawbars, but start by pushing them all in, then pull them out one by one, little by little, until you get something you like. The 1st drawbar to the left on each manual is usually the foundation tone (8'), the others overtones of that.

Here's a Wikipedia page with background on the Hammonds...

And of course, drawbar settings on LGM...

make sure that all of the percussion tabs are off. Some of those organs have weird percussion sounds. It may need to be oiled or serviced.
