1978 chevy c6500 (help)

i just bought a 1978 chevy c6500 with a 366 in it. i replaced the holley 4 barrell in a brake line , the heater switch and 8 plugs, and it now purrs like a tiger. i am having some trouble getting it to idle down only sometimes. now could it be that the new carb did not have a port on it 4 the pcv line and hook up. also what kind of a tranny would i have under this beast and if u know is it a tough 1 cuz the truck came with a 9ft plow, and i plan on hauling all my deck and fence material on it including pallets of concrete. gvw is 25,500
