typ44 turbo: stalls out, rough idle

thanks to all about the answers to the timing belt question..the general 
consensus is its the timing belt tensioner/idler pulley bearings.  

another problem ive had, since the timing belt was replaced, tho it prolly 
doesnt have anything to do with changing the belt, is that now when i start 
the car, the idle hunts up and down, then the car stalls out. (this is a '86 
5kT w/ AT)  after the second try, its ok, but idle still rough.  i tried 
adjusting the little brass idle adjustment screw at the intake, to no avail. 

Also, yesterday i was on the freeway, doing 65, then i pulled over to help 
someone on the side of the road, who had a flat, and before i could even put 
it in park, it stalled out.  i thought this was strange, since the car had 
been running fine, why would the abrubt drop in rpms cause it to stall? 

any ideas?  
thanks  -
