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...
Nope I never messed with the distributer vac lines besides verifying they were hooked up correctly and the hoses weren't leaking or falling apart. The vac valve on the distributer itself is nice and rusty one of many things i'll be trying to replace.

I'm thinking I need to get a CIS pressure gauge kit and get my wideband 02 installed so I can check the mixture.

Thanks everyone for all the guidance so far I'll post up again later when I get the wide band going or if I figure out what I did the first time I reinstalled the BOV and the ignition wouldn't fire.

Thanks! Charlie
