Chevy Dump-truck

My dad asked me if i could get the old 87 1 ton chevy dump body goen again after it's been sitting for about 2 years, a little charge of the battery she fired right up. after it warmed up and was sitting there running the idle was very high (gotta find a tach to see what the actual rpm is), i suspect it to be a vaccume leak somewhere? any ideas?
