Have you checked your throttle cable? If it's adjusted up too much, it won't let the throttle plate return to the idle position.

you can also check to see if you have a cracked boot on the carb. that will cause it also.

i know i noticed today i have a ton of gas that seems to be coming out of the carb from all edges of it. hopeing i dont have to rebuild it.
The floats probably sticking. That would explain why it won't idle down. It's overloading with gas.
