Okay, so my only experience with my WO was about 9 years ago. It ran rich, got terrible mpg's and just plain wouldn't run right. I tried but could never get it dialed in. I bought a Solex and with some very minor upgrades, it has served me well and I can easily play with different main jet sizes to get it perfect for my altitude. It gives me consistently 20mpg cruising straight and fairly level on rural roads. It has never let me down at the BHR or FCT.
BUT...I know that the WO's that you guys run run just as well. I don't know about your MPG's but from what I can tell, you are having good performance from your WO's. I'm excited to have a working "big boy carburetor" so that the other kids won't make fun of me!
Which brings me to the point...I have not yet found threads here on setting the WO up for altitude (not saying they don't exist, only that I haven't found them). Back in the day Carter made the high altitude metering rod. I would settle for a fat rod or a smaller jet. Or...should I assume that altitude is simply not an issue??? What say you...is the WO that comes to me from the lowlands going to be trouble free at altitude?
You are correct that Carter DID make a high altitude, one step leaner rod. Did being the operative word here, I have searched in vain for years for that elusive "NOS stash". At this point, the best you can do is to advance the timing a bit and lean the mixture slightly for operations above 6,000ft MSL.

Thanks, Scout. Several years ago "Carlsjeep" was on a mission to make the leaner rods but I think he may have abandoned that plan. Probably not a a big market for them, but would be a hoot to try them out.
rickg: How about a jelly roll with coffee tomorrow. I know a guy and he damned sure delivers.. youtu.be/LRHTXTCHIPk

m38mike: Got the T90C ready to go back into Blue Mule. And see why the OD won't shift. Then check all sensors for EFI. I think I'll need two cups of coffee right away. And maybe a Lee-meister SPAM sandwich!

muley: the rest of the split wood is off the hill, now to stack in the shed-a total wasp nest..

oilleaker1: Strange weather is still holding on here. Thunder and rain spitting. The snow will land on green grass this year. Coffee anyone?

m38mike: I'll take a cup. Clear warm and dry for the next week here. Think we'll go canoeing at Turquoise Lake near Leadville today. Sunny and 70's so the electric canoe should work great. Thanks Oilly.
