hey Zee is that carb new or is it an old one,and did you fix the lines? if you open the secondary air valve look down inside and see if the secondary throttle plates are open,if they are get them to close,check the primaries also. unscrew the throttle adjustment screw(located on the driverside of carb by throttle shaft),back off the fast idle screw(located on the pass side under the choke housing)if these things don't bring down the idle try moving the distributor counterclockwise slowly till engine slows down.if it still idles too hi there may be a problem with the well plugs leaking severely these are located under the carb and it will have to be pulled off the manifold to fix them ,let me know what happens
