What is your idle set at?

2000 is a high idle for a stock converter. I would try and idle it even a little lower than the 1300 even. By that point, you are still startig to engage the converter, and that's what causes it to die I think. We idle ours at around 900 rpm. Will yours idle that low, or does it die?

I had it idling at 2000 when we were running in the cam. We turned it down to 1300. We never had it down to 900, but it will idle fine in park at any rpm, But no matter where we set the idle it dies when it goes in gear. We changed the distributor and it takes a little longer to die but it still dies. The vacuum diaphram is bad and needs a new one. So I'm gonna change that. Plus I'm putting a 1500-1900 stall converter in it tonight and see what happens.
