Got it running, but the accelerator is stuck?

Hi, I have a 72 240z with round top SU's and last night I got it to run for the first time!!
It idled long enough for me to adjust the timing and fiddle with the carb settings but the accelerator linkage was moving but didn't rev the engine.
I got the engine to rev by pushing on the tabs on both the carbs but now it seems to be stuck.
I took one of the carbs off a little bit to make sure the linkage was connected properly but it when I crank it up it just revs up and won't idle.
What should I do next to try and solve the problem?
