Truck won't idle after carb rebuild

So I was having major issues with my quadrajet and instead of taking on the daunting task of rebuilding a carb foreign to me in two days I decided to re-jet and rebuild a 650 carter afb I had laying around. So everything went smooth the floats are adjusted properly everything is in right but now the truck wont idle and you have to feather the gas to keep it going. It has no choke as it originally was off a circle track car and it ran fine on my 350 with no choke just a little cold blooded in the morning, but if i stick the choke closed now the engine idles but even if I wait until it hits temp as soon as I open the choke back up it sputters and dies
