Came across another issue with my cj

Y cj7 is idling very fast and I keep having to hit the gas to slow her down, it seems very hot too. I cleaned the carb out to make sure the valves move freely, but that didn't seem to help much, it does seem better the hotter it runs. I have been told I might have an air leak don't know where though.
Any suggestions would be helpful
It's that love hate relationship.

Spray carb cleaner around the intake, carburetor base, and all of your vacuum hoses while the engine is idling. If the engine starts running faster in some location, there's your leak.
