You need to go back tho what Cheese suggested with spraying carb cleaner around the engine gaskets to see if the rpms change. That would indicate an air leak or not.

Gaskets may appear fine, but not doing their job because of age and brittleness.

You may need another carb or, if the problem is in a gasket/seal leaking, the new carb may get you nothing.
