There should be an emission sticker underhood with the specs on it.
I would think that 650 in gear would be correct. Engine warmed up fully AC off.

The CCC carb by GM is not a DIY carb. They are pretty complicated, and when they start to act up , usually they need rebuilt.
If the check engine light is on you need to figure out why.
Trying to adjust one of those probably wont work out well , at least until after a rebuild.

625-650 rpm in drive should work nicely.

Have you adjusted the choke high idle speed at all?

Are you using a non-CCC distributor?
