426 weird idle

My 02 426 starts first kick. It goes into a high idle until I push the choke in, then drops to a normal idle like it should. But sometimes after it's hot it will idle high when I come to a stop. I will adjust the idle and it brings it back to normal. Any ideas?

A hanging idle is usually because of lean idle mixture. Try the fuel screw out 1/4 to 1/2 turn more.

It is normal for the engine to idle faster when warm than when just off the choke, but the difference should be reasonably small.

Thanks for the help. I'll work on it.
