Hey Carson, very cool to see you in person finally! We ended up going all the way up to the pass, which is almost 13,000 feet, with no problems, my vintage of carb doesn't have HAC, so it's all jet settings...

Anyway, with some checks of vacuum, engine speed, etc. versus idle speed mixture and the other adjustments on the carb, you should be able to get your carb dialed in so it runs like a champ, even at altitude! And if you have the FSM just double check to make sure the HAC diaphragm is working properly too! And remember to check your air cleaner, spark plugs, and all that good stuff, reason tells me all that makes a bigger difference at altitude!

Thanks, Matt. It was awesome to catch up on the trail. I'll start doing some tinkering with my carb and see what I can come up with.

Yeah, I know. I rebuilt it 2 years ago and it runs great. Maybe I should just keep her below 12,000 feet and be happy!

I just noticed on my 22R-E that a tuneup is suggested if/when changing altitude. It wouldn't hurt to do one IMO, and just do some checks without messing with stuff just to make sure it's all working right
