Nice job. Reckon your family knows why after I cleaned my ics my idle went to 1100 and revsits self from 900 to1200 idleing.

And where the F**k is the idle adjuster.
Sorryfor hyjacking your thread.

no probs, iv changed the starter, will try it in a few hours,
87silude is your throttle body clean? if so try ajusting the base idle, if you look straite down on the throttle body from above you will see a little screw and tab, make small ajustments, and put it in drive and see how idles, good luck!

Thanks man. Cleaned my throttle body up nice and adjustedit all the way out. Small screw with a spring on it. And it still idles at1000rpm and when it goes down to about 800 it sounds like its gonna stall then jumps back up. Whatsup with it. Bahh

Yea man.
I tightened up the inlet manifold. It was slightly loose. But it still idles high.
I figured out when I tap the throttle and it rides up if I put my foot under the peddle and lift up it drops the revs. So the throttle is sticky. But even if I keep it up it dosnt go below 900rpm.
