replaced needle and seat and now wont idle

i have a snapper rer, it has a briggs and stratton engine, model number 28B702-1154E1, with a gravity fed walbro carb. anyhow it has always ran fine but if you left the fuel shutoff valve on for a day or two gas would end up in the oil. so i figured i would finally fix it. bought a new needle and seat and took the carb off to replace those parts and sure was a bugger getting out that old seat. but i installed the new needle and seat and put it back together and it runs, but it is idling quite high, and runs rough, like sputtering. well im here cause i have no idea what to do now. needle not seating right? i dont know, ive seen it done before and i did the same thing as them, but for me it aint running right. but i just need it to idle again and run like it did before, so any ideas please let me know. thanks

Possible air leak around carb gasket(s) would cause a high idle.

yea, good thought. ill be taking it off again tomo, and ill inspect everything and then maybe use some rtv red on it and put it back together. if i cant figure it out, i guess ill just buy a carb rebuild kit and see if that helps.
