Carburetor jets and altitude
« on: June 04, 2015, 03:35:03 PM »
My 1953 220S came from Tucson, Az @2400 ft to Manatee county Fl, essentially SeaLevel.  I have replaced the fuel filter, installed new plugs, cleaned the idle jets, have appear to have good response with gas from the accelerator pump and while the car runs very well at idle, and revs ok in the garage, with load it will not accelerate without a lot of sputtering.  I am thinking the change in altitude may account for the problem.  Any comments?

Did you drive it in Florida and if so, was it OK there?
