eratic idle

I have been having carb trouble for a while now. It all started with a clogged fuel filter not returning the gas to the tank so intelligent me decided to first swap on another carb then another. I had an edlebrock on it that was tuned really good but when I put that one back on I couldn't get that thing to idle for crap. This is on a 304 by the way. So now I have a Holley 4150(? 600cfm vac sec.)on it and it will idle from 800-1300 rpm but won't stay steady. My first thought was a vacum leak but can't find one, I only have vacum lines from the manifold to the carb, man. to air cleaner, carb to vac adv. I bought new fuel bowl and metering block gaskets tonight, not sure if I'll get to it tonight though. The carb to man gasket is new also. Does anyone know where I can get just gaskets for an edlebrock? The rebuild kit has the one I need but it's $45 at advance auto parts. TIA
