1983 interstate idle speed?

Postby Jeff_65 » Thu Sep 03, 2015 12:13 pm



Hello everyone!!!
Have a question for the group and in need of some guidance from all yous.
My 83 when first started will idle at right around 1000 rpm, after she warms up weather it's 5 or 50 miles she's at a steady 1500 rpm consistently, no higher, no lower.
Question for yous is. Where do I start to get her back to normal ??
Everything I've been reading is like straight to sync caborators.
Is this my starting point ? Look at them first ?
Thanks.

There's an idle speed adjustment screw....try turning it down to 1000 or so when warm.

Thanks Overdog, that was it, guess I was thinking it wasn't going to be that easy. Turned it 1 1/2 turns n now she's pering like a kitten steadily at 1000 rpm.
Thanks.

Today after my ride I backed her down a tad more, she idles now smoothly at around 950 rpm. Have to say that took alot of the clunk out when shifting as well..
