Default Slight miss question

Just got my 88 Ranger 2.9 running after months of sitting and it's running good except for a miss. Everything is new on it, plugs, wires, rotor and cap. Tomorrow I'm going to go back and double check plug gaps. Any suggestions as to where else to look. I've gone through the injector wires and they are all on the correct injector. Could it be an injector not firing and if so how do you check for that? Also what is this motor supposed to idle at? It is running at about 1200 according to the tach and I know that if it won't idle below 1000 it's not going to pass emissions here in Washington.
