idles to fast

hi new to the board but i see there is a lot of info here. i have a 1974 240 d that i just got a few days ago. the car runs pretty well except at idle. the idle is around 2000 rpm unless it is just started then it needs the fast idle. i have checked the vacuum lines and checked for vaccum and all seems well. i diconected the air cleaner and the blow by hose and it still idles very fast. i hope someone can point me in the right direction on this. thank you. also i changed the oil and filter and i could not get the filter canister out of the car, it would not come down through the frame, is there a secret to removing this from the car?
