Metering rods for WGD (776S)

Hi guys, wondering if any of you have the leaner metering rods for the WGD carbs?

75-732 - 1 size lean
75-741 - 2 sizes lean
75-742 - 3 sizes lean

Trying to tune for my elevation, ~6000ft, and while Edelbrock Performer jets fit these WGD's I can't find a Goldilocks jets size to work with the standard rods. The .083 I have in there now is a wee bit too lean in economy and it surges while cruising.

    Ah, so what I actually have in my WGD are the rods and jets from a '56 WGD (2252S) with .086 jets and 75-1194 rods.  Seems I stripped one of the original .089 jets at one point...

    Unfortunately, I don't see any info on what rod I have in the 2252S Carter Bulletin, the standard is supposed to be 75-1169.

    I have hundreds of metering rods if you want to come look (at Monkey). They are semi-organized....

    Semi-organized... just like me.  Heh... Jets too? I can't find any Edelbrock jets local, hate paying shipping on little stuff like that.
