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 think I will give it a go
I know somone mentioned marking the nut and tightening it back up to that point. Whats the thoughts on that ? I dont believe I have 13ftlbs drag at the moment as it spun quite easily on the bench but I thought I would leave well alone

The poly spring seats will not do anything untoward as regards a harsh ride. All they do is locate the axle. Personally I would have left the poly spring seats in place.
Re fitted the poly spring seats and you were right they are fine
Much easier to fit and tighten also as the do not compress

You must use a BTA carrier and not a Minor ATA carrier.
Thanks

Here's where I bought my 3.9 CWP. (246.46€).
The tolerances were not the best (Made in Turkey) and this company is distributing them all over.
