my engine seems to remain at high rpms for a quite few seconds before slowing down to an idle. all carb functions seem to check out, could it be an air leak between the carb and intake?

Could be a sticky slide as well. But if its an air leak and you spray some wd-40 over where it's leakin the idle will change indicating the leak und vhere it is!

yup, did just that, its not the manifold i made but where the carb attaches to it, i guess an o ring down in there might help, i dont want to goo it all up with silicon! lol, its a junky clamp arrangement!
