Default Mule 3010 4x4 idle problem

I recently acquired a used mule. It ran very rough so I took the carb off and cleaned it. It starts good now but when its in neutral, the idle is way too high to put it in gear. I can tap on the gas a few times and it will go back to regular idle speed for a few seconds, but then revs up again. When I get the idle down enough to get it in gear, it idles fine. So the problem is only in neutral. I backed off the petal screw but it still idles too high. Also adjusted the idle screw, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. When the unit is shut off, it sputters and slightly backfires. Thoughts? Time for a new carb?
