Try spraying some carb cleaner in the area of the moving parts. They do get gummed up.
Just in case that doesn't do it; I had been fooling around with my advance weights in my dist. and had the same problem. Turned out that the mechanical advance weights were not returning to the idle position until the engine slowed below my idle speed.
