There is an Idle control sensor that has likely gone bad, take it to a trusted mechanic or dealer and have them replace it to solve the problem--roughly $300 repair at a Toyota dealer

yes definately could be a fuel regulator problem. with the tank lifted. you can see the fuel rail and toward the left you can see a diaghram style fuel regualtor. there is a small vaccum line that goes to it. take that line off and check for any signs of gas moisture. ive seen this to be a consistent problem with alot of the 929's.

not running for a year! You have a varnish buildup in the low end circuit of the carb. You will need to remove the carb and do a full teardown of the carb to properly rectify this problem. SOMETIMES we are able to free up the passages by putting SEA FOAM cleaner in the tank , fill her up with fresh fuel and ride through the tank and it will clear up. SEA FOAM can be purchased at an auto parts store and is sometimes very effective. 1/4 cup to full tank fuel.

Tips for a great answer:
30-38 psi (207-262 kN/m squared) at 2000 rpm and normal operating temperature of 230 degrees F (110degrees C)
At idle it can be very much lower (10 to 15 is not unusual and can even be lower than that sometimes) as volume rather than pressure is the key in lubrication of the rolling bearings which these engine utilize rather than plain bearings. This is why there is no published idle oil pressure.
