Idle problem with 1952 chevy 216 idle

I am working on a old chev 52 truck with 216 engine.
The engine recieved a nice O/Haul"expensive"-and I did all the assembly/trial assembly...BUT after I let a freind "kit" the carb it has NO idle..
It is a rochester 1 barrel,has a enrichment piston with a little ball valve at the top,etc... It idled before so somthing isnt right with it.
Any help out there ?
