83 Carb problems... **NEED HELP** :(

Last night I decided to see if I couldn't do something about my leaky carburetor in my 1983 ranger. It's a motorcraft 2150 carb. I took it all apart and followed a guide to clean it, then put it all back together and reinstalled it today. Unfortunately my truck won't idle, makes a whiney noise, and acts odd with the accelerator. I've got a video posted here:

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated since this is my only ride!
