If you pull the vac line to the dist that faces the dist timing should jump about 300rpm from your vacuum retard function going away.[/QUOTE]

Did you do this?

You did mention that part of your distributer was rusted/corroded... maybe it's the vaccuum advance portion. therefore, your timing is too far advanced at idle causing the higher idle speed???

Just a thought...
