Setting the idle in a Corvair!
setting the idle in this engine, a 110 HP with a 270 Isky cam...normally, I set the idle at around 6 to 700 RPM; when the chokes kick in, I set it to around 1100 RPM. It might vary depending on the size of the cam you are using, and personal preference. With this engine, I am running a dual Exhaust system, the RPM is a little lower so I can hear the rumble. For more info, don' t forget to refer to your shop manual, or give me a holler, I will be glad to help you out to get your ride going.
