Smile engine running fast

I have an 84 Cutlass, that I've been restoring. It's been running fine, but now at idle it revs up and I can't get it to idle down. It's even tough to hold it back with the brake. any ideas on how to correct the idle

fast idle with carb

vacuum leaks, choke not heating up and coming off of fast idle cam or cam stuck, faulty idle speed control if it's a 3.8 v-6 OR faulty idle load control if it's a 307 v-8. if it's a 305, it uses neither. also base idle adjustment can be way off. jeez...been a long time since i thought about carbs!
