If I had to fix this, I would use a tiered approach. You have several issues to deal with. 1st- is the engine timing correct (lets assume it is), try adjusting the choke (blackdial on the ffront of a single barrel, turn towards lean) this should bring down the idle. Turn it till it almost dies then turn in the opposite dirrection SLIGHTLY until it steadies out. The engine might shake more now (it did w/mine) so now you losen the 1/2 bolt that is behind the distribibutor. Now that the dis. is lose turn the whole diss. assembily slightly in either direction. One way will steady out the engine, this is adjusting the ignition timmiing. If all that works out you should be golden. Of course there is a lot of possible causes connecting rod length between the gas pedal & carb, vac. leak(through a vac. gauge on it, that will help finding wether or not there is a leak). if this doesnt work repost with results and a vacum reading. I'll check back

Try replacing your Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, it's cheap and easy to replace. Just remember do it when the coolant is cool to work with before you start cracking a pressurized system.

Either there is a vacuum leak causing the high idle, or
the IACV is bad or being controlled by the computer to make idle speed too high:
To change the IACV refer to the following:
