Idle speed in gear

I have the idle speed set to 950 rpm in neutral, but when i put it in gear it idles at 400. I i was thinking about adjusting the idle mixture screws a little and see it i can fix it but it's dark out now. Is this most likely the problem or could it be something else? Engine is a chevy 350 with an edelbrock carb.

Thats a big drop. Might need more initial timing along with mixture screw adjustment. Find your best idle mixture adjustment and then go back out 1/4-1/2 turn richer to help with this rpm drop.

Yes, it's annoying. I didn't think about timing. Maybe ill play with that a little also.
