Turns out the rebuilt carburetor had a spring installed backwards, causing it to be in the way of the fast idle cam, so the cam would never step down.
Armed with a thermostat and it's housing gasket, coolent and hoses - plus a new 12 mm wrench - Should fix up fine.
Now for this wrench fabrication...
Fast idle cam getting stuck against spring.
throttle getting stuck? Binding somewhere? Good idea to get a tach..really cheap.
