If'n were talkin dual carbs (assuming so)
umm.. well there should not really be any 'play' in the linkage itself, you want absolutely for BOTH carbs to get the exact same amount of 'input' from the throttle as possible.. i.e. keep both halves of the engine balanced.
If your refering to play in the accel. cable itself, that can be adjusted at the central linkage point itself... loosen the set screw and either tighten or loosen the slack in the cable as needed... you MIGHT have the cable drawn up too tight where the carbs arent returning to idle position completely, giving you the higher idle speeds.

I dunno.. more input on what ya did when ya took em off till ya put em back on might help too. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img]
