    I'm with BIkerRon, 1000 rpm idle should be fine, unless you've got a lot of carbon build up, then the fuel is re-igniting due to hot pieces of carbon acting like glow plugs, even when the key is off. i.e. dieseling. I'd run through a few tanks, with several ounces of SeaFoam, and ride the snot out of it regularly hitting the rev limiter as you go through the gears. If you really want to clean it, get a can of SeaFoam DeepCreep, remove a plug from each cylinder, and spray a ton of DeepCreep in there. Then let it sit at least over night. If you do, before you try starting the motor, turn it over several times with the plugs OUT, to clear the excess DeepCreep. Place a rag over the plug holes so you don't spray the stuff all over.

    FYI This was the before and after of my pistons and that's not unusual:

    A lot of people don't know that when you clean carbon from a piston you should not remove the carbon ring above the top ring on the side of the piston because it helps stop oil burning

      Quick question...I usually do the Seafoam every so often routine, but I read on one of the posts that you should use Techron total fuel treatment every so often to keep the fuel level sending unit clean. Wouldn't the SeaFoam and Techron do about the same thing as far as the carbs and combustion are concerned?
