Hello I am new to my 190 and the first thing I noticed was that when it started it was almost barely hanging in there. I then looked at the tach and say it was barely past 500 maybe at 600. What is the Normal idle for a 2.6l from 1990?

The person I bought it from had it sitting for ages but it surprisingly is in near perfect with no rust that I can find. I guess it sat for so long the Idle screw undid itself if its possible. Anyway back to my question I replace plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor. I also replaced the fuel filter tonight but did not finish. Is there any other reason why it would be barely being able to keep running?

If my Idle does need to be turned up were do increase the idle?
