FordFairlane78 says you have a vacuum leak somewhere and so do I.

Boots get torn easily in these and the fuel line has a sharp turn that develops a crack below the carb.

The seal on the clutch side goes bad easily also.

Ok, I only used it 3-4 times since replacing the fuel line. Would the impulse hose have any effect on the idle?

If it is kinked or loose on the end it might but your problem sound more like a big air leak in the boot or around a seal
