1275 cc idle speed

I have a 1275cc with a single 1 1/2 HIF
Idle is rough and I need run it at 1300 plus
It has a low tech electronic ignition which uses points and an lcb exhaust and k & n filter
What should it idle at ?

Re: Diff Identification

I have found a dealer who has 3 diffs all 3.9:1 out of the axles
Apart from physical damage to teeth what should I look for ?
