Default 89 w150 high idle

I removed alternator, changed a plastic vac hose that runs to the valve on top of the air pump, PCV valve and grommet, cleaned things up, and put it back together, started it up and it now is running very high idle? Thinking I missed a vac hose, maybe on the throttle body?

Any ideas on where to start looking? Seems to run ok when I took it up the block.

Default Fixed

Happy to say its fixed....embarrassed to say it helps to plug in the idle control motor on the throttle body! Oops.
