My engine dies if I reduce the RPM below 800 RPM at idle speed. I will check for vacuum leaks at this point. I guess the engine is running too lean below 800 RPM due to extra air from some place.
Do you agree?
What else should I consider.

"That engine should maintain idle between 650 and 700 RPM if it is tuned to specs, and valves are sealing well. Check for vacuum leaks and then re-set timing to specs. If that doesn't allow idle to be maintained at 650 to 700, then do a compression check."
