Default rebuilt carb now fast idle and tight accelerator

I just rebuilt my Rochester Quadrajet on my 88 D100.
(With the air filter off) First start up was immediate, but was idling fast. I may have messed something up with reinstalling the accelerator cable/spring. The factory service manual didn't have a detailed diagram on the setup for this. Any ideas?


Alright! I adjusted the choke rod and the idle screw. Plopped a new Throttle Return Spring on there and she runs great now!

Thanks for the help fellas. Now I just have to figure out why my radiator is gulping so much antifreeze.
