ok heres the story my gandfather purchsed a 52? 8n a few years ago well come to find out it didnt have any of the fuel screens on it so i replaced all them and went ahead and rebuilt the carb now it cranks fine but i cant get it to idle under 1400 rpm it idled at 450 or so before ive taken the gov arm off made sure the butterfly is closed and the idle screw does nothing could this be a clogged idle jet or does it sound more like a air leak

Is butterfly valve installed correctly? No clogged jet or air leak will do that.

Sounds more like the linkage is not hooked up as it should be or the idle screw on the linkage is set wrong

Idle screw as in the jet adjustment of the linkage adjustment. If the linkage adjustment then good chance you have the throttle butter fly in wrong
