Default Having trouble with build

I put a 66cc on a huffy Newport, haven't modified any parts. When trying to get the motor started, it does start and I can keep it running while holding the throttle, but it doesn't idle at all. As soon as I let go of the throttle it shuts off. I have adjusted almost every combination of settings on the carb from float to pin level and the idle doesn't seem to do anything either (even when it is all the way in). I tried turning the choke on while holding the throttle open and it killed the motor, so I think it is getting too much gas but I can't figure out how to change that without buying a new carb. Any input is helpful!

On a side note, the kit came with a leaky petcock coming from the thread and with a little Teflon tape it has been dry so far. cheaper than ordering a new one.

Thanks guys
