as deuce said check linkinge for tension it maybe pulling your throtle.did you plug the holes in the carb one in back carb comes with screw in plug and caps.make sure your choke is not on.lower the idle screw on the drivers sides neer where the linkage hooks on.the to screws in front with the springs are the air fuel for now screw them in all the way than open them 1 turns.if your distributor has a vacum plug it in also not sure what side one side for tranny and the other for distr.check your manual came with carb.use the correct gasket it came with carb on big hole not 4 holes.when you get it to run ok you got to rev it to 2000 for 20 min or so to break in the cam look at water and oil gages to make sure nothing goes wrong.better to have a friend there to look at engine and stuff also leaks and ect...
after you can get a timming light and tune the carb.. PS.get a tack before so you know what your reving good luck hope this helps...
