Do you have a saw vise? It's a lot easier to set teeth when they're presented properly to you. Decide what set you want (ten thousandths per side is good), measure the deflection of the teeth, then adjust the set to make the teeth lean that much. Then sharpen the teeth.
Suggestion: Start by sharpening the teeth. If it pulls to one side after that, check and adjust the set. Then touch up those teeth in case they changed their angle.
Here are some links for more info:

the Morrill certainly works, I'd rank it at best in third place, with a Taintor's Positive Number 7 in first place and a Stanley (can't remember the number) in second.

Practice on a flat strip of metal. Measure it before and after the "set". If it's more than 0.010" wider afterwards, adjust the saw set to move it less. Test again.

Agreed!
