1982 SC Low Idle Problem

Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model: 911 SC; Year: 1982; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 126,000;

The car had been running great, then I was driving the other night and when I went to neutral (in stop & go traffic) the idle suddenly dropped to approx 200-300. I was able to get it back up to normal idle without it stalling but had to hold it there using the accelerator, and was able to get it home, but could really have used a third foot. I was very hard to start the next morning - kept stalling and backfiring - but eventually started. After warming up it still will idle at 200 - 300 with foot off gas, but is driveable and smooth running above 1000 RPM. Any Ideas?
