It is possible that you have cranked down on the carb throttle link rods and yes they may also be holding the throttle partially open.

There is a procedure for setting up all of these, ( idle stop, link rods ) see page 19 in the manual. Pay attention to the statement regarding backing off the link rod screws 1-1/2 turns from the just snug position. This is really important. Follow the instructions. When the link rods are drawn up too tight the fast idle cam will not be effective. There's a fine balance between the length of the link rods and the mechanics of the fast idle cam. I screwed around with these adjustments for hours before understanding the relationship between them. Following the Service Manual should get you in the ball park.
