You have a lean fuel/air mixture. It could be in the fuel delivery to the carb (filter/plugged cap vent/blocked fuel line) or in the carb (usually the diaphragm = fuel pump). Or it could be in the crank seals or intake manifold gaskets - either would cause a vacuum leak = lean mixture and fast idle.
