I would guess that your distributor has turned, or more likely you have a vacuum line loose or off. I had a vacuum line off on my 460, and it would idle @ 1000-1100 rpm, found the leak and idle returned to 550-650

pull the iac valve off and see if it is stuck open. they get all gummed up and dont move too well anymore.

While you clean the air bypass valve, also clean the throttle bores with a brush, solvent and a rag....it will idle way better regardless
