    I believe a carb truck should be around 750-800 in neutral idle and 550-600 in gear.

    My TPI is about 750 neutral idle and 650-700 in gear.

    i've got the sm465 and at idle it sits at about 600rpms, i usually shift to second (actually 3rd, but i don't use granny around town) at about 2500 rpms, unless i'm getting on it then i shift at 5300 rpms.
