quick pricing question

I just took delivery of my 71T targa from florida. It needs the carbs syncronized and tuned for my elevation and climate. What would one expect to pay for this service? (zeinith carbs)

Labor rates are 80-100 per hour. I would think
not more than 3 hours to sync and tune the carbs at a shop familiar working on older models. However sometimes if the carbs can not be adjusted it may require additional time and tweaking. Jet cleaning , Valve and timing adjustment. linkage adjustment spark plug replacement. All things that comtribute to good carbuerator performance.

Is the difference in elevation between FL and IL really enough to necessitate carb tuning?

the po claims they are rebuilt. and its clear they need major tuning. I can visibly see what carbs are too rich. its running very poorly and is very rich on three cylinders.

I know nothing about carbs. a simple diagram telling me what screw does what would help alot. i know i need to lean out three of them. they are visibly popping and shooting fuel out. and the car doesnt want to rev past 2200 rpm or so
