    Right in the ballpark! Better a little rich than too lean but 2 turns out at 2,500 ft with Wenatchee's humidity sounds just right. Always nice to double check with others though, especially when they agree with you.

    Picture 1 looked rich, but the follow-on picture's looked ok as everyone else has stated.

    When you state "idle needs adjustment", do you mean it's running rough, & inconsistent etc., as a result of the adjustments made? Or is it idling consistent, but too high or too low?

    I am going to go out on a limb and say it looks a little bit rich to me, both at idle and WOT, but honestly, it if runs well I would leave it alone. It is close enough.
