Q-jet rebuild ?

I recently pulled a vehicle out of storage and have been driving it around but noticed it would bog when I really got on the throttle, so I figured the cab might have crap in it (it's been sitting for 12 years) so I pulled it apart and after finally getting the right rebuild kit for it I put it back together. Everything appeared to be alright until I started the engine, it would instantly go right to about 5k rpm if you even thought about touching the pedal and fuel is pouring out of it from somewhere (the manifold was covered in fuel). I am going to try to see what I have done so wrong tomorrow and I figured I would ask if anyone had any ideas what I should look for ? Thanks for any help.

For it to tach up that fast, I'd say the linkage is bound open somewhere. Maybe you pinched something on the right side of the carb not letting it close. Unless you have a major vac leak

metering rods aren't in the holes.

THe rear rods ? I thought it was funny how easily they slipped into place. The only thing is that the little arm which they are attached to moves freely up and down with no binding seems like there would be bind if they weren't in there holes? How can I tell when they are in the holes ?

I was thinking about the front rods, and it's just a guess. I mean it sounds like fuel is forcing its way past the needle and seat.
