Hello and welcome to justanswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with this. Pinch the pcv valve hose and see if it helps, if so the pcv is bad. The 2 plastic canisters on the driver side of the carb will also cause a bad idle. Also, spray some carb cleaner around the intake manifold and hoses at idle to check for vacuum leaks.
