Had a similar issue on my 87. It only happened on the first start up of the day, once I got it moving the problem would go away. I never fixed it (too many other issues), but was able to get around it by starting in gear and hitting the gas pretty hard as I slowly eased out on the clutch. Hope this helps. May be something entirely different from what I dealt with
