    Question for all you to argue over -

    1991 Sambar, Manual, NOT Super Charged

    What is the Idle Speed?

    What is the Red Line?

    okay, I took the time today to open the engine cover, you know the super easy one at the back...no not the on the bed, the black one with the key.....guess what? Well right there it says 800 RPM + or - 50 RPM

    At least that is what I think it says...........

    That sounds right, I believe the MPI SC are 900 rpm same as Milts Hijet
    I'll try to find the correct redline for you, not sure if it's the same as S/C model

    easy way to adjust idle?


    Is there an easy way to adjust the idle speed? I've been messing around with the cable adjustment but every other engine I have adjusted had a screw....

    Maybe PM Colin if he doesn't reply here, as he has the NA version and has tinkered with his quite a bit.

    Here is how you adjust it on my 98 Sambar......There is a small phillips head screw if you look down into the hole with the arrow. It is on the drivers side of the engine.

    You can use a handheld mechanics tach...other than that it's by ear

    What is the easiest way to check the idle speed. I want to know immediately, because i always have to go to a truck specialist and i should also know it.
