Because it's carbeurated they have an electric 'idle up' solinoid (or vacuume) to compensate for rev loss when load is put on the engine caused by the alternator working harder because your using power. It should have a small adjustment screw on the carbeurator to lower the revs. If you have it set too low it will shudder when in drive & foot on brake with headlights on. It should only pick up about 200rpm when lights are on. To find the screw, take the air filter off, run the engine & look for something moving when the lights are turned on & off. Somewhere near the moving bit you will find the adjustment screw. I hope. I'm not sure exactly where it is on that model.

I had a similar problem, the middle cylinders- both compression was low. The Expert Mechanic told me that the valves have to be replaced. So the Head was opened and the valves were checked and they wer allright. The the Head was machined, and the PISTON rings were replaced. Now the vehicle runs good. This might help.
So when you get to replace the valves, be ready for the pistons/ or piston rings. cost about 600 dollars in all.
