throttle sticking on weber....?????

Once my engine warms up - my weber throttle sticks and the engines revs up between 1500 and 2200 rpms (at idle - no pushing of the gas peddle) and I have to rev the engine to kick it back down do idle speed. What is the deal? How can I fix this and is this a common problem for Webers?

Another question - Crowhorse told me that a fuel regulator helps smooth out the Weber's idle and just make it run better in general. When I spoke with Calmini (who sold me the Weber) they said that this is not needed - especially because I have their 1.6L swap kit which gives the correct fuel pressure with the supplied fuel pump. Do I need to add a regulator and if I do at what pressures should I run it (between 1.5-3.5 psi as shown in the instruction manual)?

help me please.......

You just need to add a small spring that puts tension on the throttle linkage to make it return to idle position when you take your foot off the pedal. I took one off of a stock carb.
