this is my first moped and i've never really worked on them before so apologies if this is an easy fix i couldnt find any info

i took the carb apart and cleaned it out cuz it wasn't running. now when i put it back together, and start it, i turn the moped on and dont touch the throttle at all... but the starts going crazy and running at full speed. i tried turning the throttle screw like 3 full turns (u can see the spring that wraps around the screw) and it still wont slow down to idle. i have the air screw out like 2.5 turns. seems as though no matter how far i turn those screws, it wont slow down. any ideas on why i cant get this thing to slow down?

i almost ran myself over the first time... the wheel was on the ground and it just started going out of control
