Rich, nice getting all those hours in, dang that’s roughly 95 bbl of gas. They’re making overtime in Houston to keep up with the demand. Good on ya!

Not sure if Bing auto adjusting capability is less effective at your higher MSL with time in service than here at 500 MSL. What design parts have wear factors that allow it to auto adjust?

The west coast shop who overhauled my carbs did replace the needles and floats, but frankly I was not happy with them. They managed to swap my right and left choke assemblies which made starting almost impossible. Took me a few hours to figure it out and swap them back. As Gomer would have said, “SHAZAM, now it works!”
