Rough Idle

I just recently installed a Crane XR1 points conversion module with a PS40 crane coil, new cap and rotor. I've noticed the motor idles a little rough but when I increase the RPM's it smooth's out fine and runs well. Could this just be a matter of resetting the timing to fix it?

Thanks

Re: Rough Idle

Sounds like the best place to start. I would also check your idle mixture settings while your at it.
