Idle Rpm?

My A33 has an IO-550, and I am looking for the idle RPM. SID97 suggests checking the aircraft manufacturers data, which I think for my aircraft would be futile. What idle RPM should I be seeing.

Model: Debonair 35-A33
Aircraft Serial Number: CD-363

The low end of the fuel system set up procedure calls out 600 RPM, so that is where it is set to make the pump and mixture adjustments. During that time, the 600 is achieved manually (the stop has been backed out to allow the controls to be manipulated for 600). If the engine is happy there, the stop can be adjusted adjusted for that RPM, but sometimes a little higher is preferred by the customer. I don't like to see it higher than 700.
