My diesel pump decided to start leaking and kill my alternator.

Anyway all sorted now but is it possible that something needs adjusting as it seems to be idling higher than it used to.

Not sure what was done as I didn't repair it. What is best to do? Turn the spindle or the screw?

I would just try turning down the idle screw and seeing how it drives. Changing the spindle position can be a pain in the backside.

They normally settle down after a run in period.
