My 85 rrc runs fairly well ticking over about 800rpm when the choke is first pushed in how ever as it gets up to temp (needle in middle of guage) the tickover rises to 1000-1100rpm.

On sat when stuck in traffic and she got a bit warm (radiator on todo list) needle 2/3rds up the guage the tickover slowly rose to 1800-2000rpm!

Also when its ticking over fast and turned off it tends to run on for a couple of seconds, is this related?

Is it normal for tickover to rise with engine temp?

Is it easy to adjust/fix?

This is my first V8 I'm generally a diesel boy, but couldn't resist the noise.

Sounds like you could have an air leak at some point after the throttle, so even with the throttle closed the engine is still getting air. Try squirting some easy start or similar around the induction area and listen for changes in engine note. This should help you pin point the leak. If you have no luck let us know.

Have a fire extinguisher on hand just in case.
