[DML] Re: Lambda system

No coincidence -- your manual idle circuit was set high.

Even if CIS closed the idle speed motor completely trying to get idle
speed back down to its hard wired 750 RPM, if the manual circuit was
open far enough to yield 1,200, there's nothing CIS could do to
override it.

BTW: You didn't need to worry about Screws 2 and 3 (assuming their O
rings are in good shape to prevent vacuum leaks). Simply closing Screw
1 will close the manual circuit.

If automatic equipped CIS shoots for 750 RPM (I don't know -- my
DeLo's a straight drive), your current 1,000 could be caused by the
lower throttle plate screw contacting its stop, cracking open the
throttle plates. 

Or your CIS could be unhealthy.
