[DML] High idle post tune up

So on the way the gettysburg, my automatic (~10k miles) was running great with a full tank 
of gas, but when it got below 3/4 she would start to buck.  At the show I replaced the pickup 
hose which had a small tear in it, but that didn't solve the problem.  I just got around to 
replacing the fuel pump and a major service kit including:
Emptied tank
fuel filter
fuel pump +screen
distributor cap and rotor
Air filter
(haven't done O2 sensor yet.

Anyway She used to idle right below 1000rpm.  Now she runs fine, but is idling so high 
(2500rpm) I thought something might be pulling the throttle. (nothing is)  I imagine that I 
disconnected some minute hose or some wire that is of critical importance to keeping a low 
idle.  Any ideas on what I screwed up?  Or better yet how to fix it?
