Hello, I'm looking for some advice. I'm buying an Ariens with the 420 cc engine, it'll be used at an altitude of 6500 feet. Do I need to do anything to set it up right for that altitude? Thanks!

Is this new, and are you buying it from a dealer?

Still shopping dealers. I inquired from a mail order dealer and they said no adjustment was necessary but I'm sceptical.

Higher altitude means you will need even less fuel so if anything the engine will be running a bit richer and thats better than too lean. Temperature also affects jetting. Colder it is the richer the jetting needs to be. You will be fine with the stock sea level jetting because if anything it will run slightly richer at your elevation.
