hey all, it's me again. It takes my squire too long to idle down after it's been reved up. I tried adjusting the main jet to a richer setting but it em didn't really like that.. Is this normal?

   How long is to long ?  minutes ?  hours ?  my big ten will idle down fairly quickly like maybe 5 sec from full throttle to a fast idle but then takes a minute or so to really settle into a slow chug.  if it is setting for awhile idling then it will really slow down, I love the sound of that briggs at a super slow idle :D  if it is holding a hi idle or fast revs after you throttle down than I would look tot he governor, check to be sure it is adjusted correctly and that there isn't anything in the way.  even excessive gunk buildup would cause a slow governor.
