1980 Honda Express II NA50 Idle Issue

Looking for some advice on my idle/throttle.... My 1980 Honda Express II was running just fine and then stopped one day... so I took the carb off and cleaned it up, put it back together and she is back to running... however i am now having an issue with my throttle/throttle cable maybe? It wants to accelerate right away and does not slow down... any ideas or suggestions would be helpful!

Sounds like an air leak .

Well i just discovered i put the float needle in incorrectly when assembling the carb back together... im not sure what all that will fix... but im going to start with fixing that and see what happens!.... When you say sounds like an air leak, can you please let me know from where you're thinking? I'm assuming the throttle cable but im new to all this! :)

Air leak .

Assuming the carb is leak free , a likely place would be the joint where the carb mounts to the motor ( the last place you disturbed ) .
