59 220s fintail road trip. Advice needed!

I just purchased a 59 220s w111 in central California and I'm planning on driving it home to northwest washington here in a week or so. The car is in really good mechanical order and I don't expect to have any issues really.. I am mostly wondering if Im going to have any carb issues going over a 4700' pass? Will I have to adjust at all? The only other Mercedes I have is a unimog and it dogs out pretty bad with 1000' foot climb so I thought I would ask.. Also any spares I should have on hand for this trip just in case, fan belt ecc.?
