holley 4412 lower elevation adjustment?

hi all
i just moved from 4400 feet above sea level to 600 feet
and now my stock ford 302 wont even start (it ran fine before the move)
when i first got it off the trailer i was able to drive it around the block but now it wont even do a complete revolution when i try to turn it over.
i loosened the capture bolt on the distributor so i could turn it this way and that.
and now i can turn it over.
please be gentle because the only thing i have ever done to a holley carb was a simple rebuild kit.

Update

ok fellas
i figured i better at least give you an update.
since this is a recently built rod and many bugs are being worked out on a regular basis.
i went back to square one and put the dizzy and carb settings back to where they were originally.
then i cleaned the contacts of the dizzy and went along the electrical curcuits tightening every nut etc. i could find.
the engine started first try.
when it gets dark enough to see the timing light easily .
i will adjust that to the best of my ability.
