Q-Jet wont idle?!?

Hey, I finally got the chevy Q-jet back together and installed. The problem is that as soon as I turn the ignition it revs to about 3K RPM for around 5 seconds and then dies. I can't get it to idle and I cant get it to stop reving so much when I turn the key.

Has anybody else had this happen after a rebuild, and anybody got any idea of what is wrong?


Oh yeah, I checked the secondaries and they dont seem to be opening at idle or anything so that doesnt seem to be the problem. The choke is also pulled wide open as soon as the motor turns over because it revs so high and creates alot of instant vacuum.
