Some things, check the carburetor gasket, they deteriorate with time, check for vacuum leaks alone the intake manifold & heads with carburetor cleaner, actually all vacuum areas, rpm would pick up if you find a leak, make sure the carburetor is clean, and check for fuel pressure, it should be like 4 to 6.5 lbs. and check the EGR valve to make sure it is closing all the way.
