Should be an idle adjustment screw on the carb somewhere. If you turn it out a bit you should idle fine. Might take some tinkering.

If you get off the tractor and use the main arm to make it idle? sounds to me like your missing a spring.

Thanks guys! I played with the jets and they all have their springs. i also cleaned the carb really well and it seems to idle better, but not the greatest. ill keep playing with it and see what happens!
