It may be a good idea to check for vacuum leaks. Purchase a can of carb cleaner and spray around the base of the carb while the engine is running...make sure all vacuum lines are hooked up and not cracked. I have had a rochester 2bl carb with a warped base plate. See if that increases the idle speed or smooths out the idle...It's worth a try before you rebuild the carb.
