Hello, everyone.  Midway through the driving season, chugging lots of miles to and from work in the '59 TR3A, it running like a champ.  Lots of power.  Mostly sorted in all ways (odometer doesn't work 2,000 miles into the rebuild), but nothing major.  

Except.  Coming to a stop at a light, engine idles at about a thousand, then slowly drops until, unless I rev the engine, it will stall.  

Am I right thinking it's probably a vacuum leak at the manifold?
