I have had an ongoing query on what is the proper idle RPM . Once the
engine has properly
warmed up, it will idle at approx. 7-800 +/- . the reason I ask is it
seems that every time I
give it gas to go I tend to give a light pump or two to get it going.
it 's getting fuel to all the right places
it just seems that if it were at a better idle I might not have to
give that extra nudge on the gas pedal.
( the engine is carb , not EFI ) I've given it gas to bring it up to
900-1000 rpm and it seems to be a bit
smoother. Can I change the rpm on the carb to keep it at the
900-1000 range or is this a bad idea ?

My '87 carburetor had an idle adjusting screw located on the passenger
side of the carb. Manually work the accelerator cable at the carb and
you will see which screw you need to adjust to increase idle rpm. You
may have another issue, such as accelerator pump not working properly.
Rebuild kits are still available for the '87 and may be available for
the '84 too.

Jarhead, thanks for the info - will pop the hood once the rain stops
and give a quick look.
