If you end up pulling the carb take a look at the t-slot exposure. If you have a lot of slot showing below the throttle blades the effective range of the transition circuit is limited.
I had actually forgotten about the wire trick. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I will do that before any jet changes. Also my T-slot is almost but not quite square which should be pretty close to where it has to be.
