Confused about the the need to reject on elevation changes as when Mark, Mary and I did the C.O.B.B.run last year we saw sea level out on the Pacific coast, then 14,000 plus elevation on top of Pikes Peak a week later returning to the Midwest. Both the Sportys did just fine. Was that just a fluke?

No it's not a fluke. But he "may" need to reset now anyway. And the pilot screw adjustment isn't varied by the vacuum slide so it's possible what is set at altitude might be a tad lean at sea level (for idle operation).

Yeah, we definitely need a separate thread for the carb problem. This has been going on for days.
