This may be a stupid question. The Haynes manual says to set the high idle speed to 1400 - 1600 rpms. Does that seem too high to anyone? I have read several places on the WWW, it was supposed to idle at 500 - 1000 rpms.
 
That sounds about right for high idle. Base idle should be in the 600 to 800 range.
 
yep. thats about right.

I get it, I'm a Jeep owner and ad-block detectors kinda stink but ads are needed on this site. This is a CJ site, all the ads are set for autos (some times others get through.) I cannot make them just for Jeeps but I try.

Please allow ads as they help keep this site running by offsetting the costs of software and server fees.
