My best guess via cyberspace is that you have a vacuum leak.
When you have a vehicle that is more than 2 decades old, there are a lot of possibilities, but I think that looking for a leak in one of the vacuum hoses is the best place to start.

interesting diagnosis for a bad lope.

I’ve been scratching my head over that one. If you have a clue what “bad lope” means, please tell us.

Unsteady idle speed at regular intervals?
