New '82 245- a Couple Initial Questions- 200 1982

Hi all-

It's been quite a long time since I've had a 240, but I picked up an '82 245 4spd with the fuel injection (I believe it's referred to as a b21F-MPG). It's in ridiculous rust-free shape for a Minnesota car. I'm tracking down a Haynes and Bentley manual on Craigslist, but in the meantime, I thought I'd post a couple questions- I'm hoping the link to a couple photos works, but if not it's: https://imgur.com/a/xaREI -

1. High idle- I have a pretty high idle that drops when I go into gear and start driving, and I'm assuming it has something to do with the loose cable/broken adjuster (why is this part made out of nylon/plastic??) on this pulley mount- can anyone tell me what this part is/what else I'm missing in this picture I took in the dark? I'm also assuming the blank hole on the plate is where a cable to an automatic tranny would go? Or is there a part missing?

2. Rust- (this question is directed to my northern climate bricks) I'm sure this comes up a lot, but I'm in the salty tundra of Minnesota and this thing is pretty much rust free- I'm assuming no one here recommends driving it in the winter, but am I going to be okay with it in my driveway with a breathable cover or should I find a garage? / Does anyone recommend undercoating/wax spray?
