Yes, I had the air filter off while making adjustments. Lesson learned.

Ok, I will try to temporarily lower it to 800 rpm before getting to the distributor and hooking up the timing light.

Slightly off topic, but what are the chances a cheap-looking after-market tach can be off by a few hundred rpm? I ask because when I hooked up the timing light last time, the light was showing about 200 rpm more than what the tach was showing.
