Won't Idle

Ok, have a 3.5 hp Classic Briggs, I have replaced the sparkplug and airfilter. I can not get it to idle right, there is no adjustments on the carb. What can I do to smooth it out?

Setting here trying to figure out what you mean "wont idle right" just two things comes to mind.The bottom housing of your air filter might be bent a little cousing the throttle shaft on the carb. to drag/stick.If not try soaking the carb in chem-dip for 20-30 minutes,hose off,dry with compressed air and replace diaphragm kit with B&S#495770.If that still dosn't work right,replace the plastic carburetor
