Yep....flat + maybe another or 1/2 or so does sound about right.

As you climb higher, you'll probably notice the idle rpm drop off as the motor
runs progressively more rich (at idle) as you climb.

Restoring it to prior idle rpm by careful leaning the higher you go should pretty much do the trick over the whole range.

If you were gonna spend some time at 5.000'+ I'd recommend the "weak" needle as given in the manual, installing same as you climb through 3,000' or so. But for
temporary work, the above mentioned should be close enough for government work. Better SLIGHTY on the rich side going
uphill anyway unless ambient temp is pretty cool.  

Engjoy! :)
