This is my first day on this group, and already you guys have been a HUGE help. I found out it was in fact the stupid throttle linkage. When I hooked it up, I didn't even notice that it pulled the throttle back about 1.5 inches. I adjusted the linkage and after hooking up the tach, noticed all is running fine!! I only have about 80 things left to do now to drive her this summer (get it tagged, front end alignment, etc etc etc), but this was a huge accomplishment for me today. Thanks to all of you for your input!
