Edelbrock Carb tuning at 4500 ft.

So I just bought a '79 J10 so I now have a FSJ out here in Utah. I settled for an auto, and of course it died on the way home, but that's another matter entirely.

So, not being super familiar with Edelbrock Carbs, this one came with a 1406 and is originally from a much lower elevation in Texas and runs way rich. Anyone at altitude know which metering rods and jets I should pick up or have any other carb tuning tips? It's electric choke functions fine and it does open up at operating temps, so I know that's not the problem. Any help would be much appreciated.

pull up edelbrock .com and down load the boob on the 1406 it will give you a scale to work from and the # you need
