How many miles on the car?


Black smoke usually means your rings are gone, or severely gone valve guides.

Do a wet and dry compression test will tell you what you need to know.

It might be that your carb is set to be too rich at idle. However, you would know this by smelling the exhaust at idle. If too rich, you'll smell unburnt petrol. If it's oil causing the smoke (bad valve guides or rings), the smell will be from a worn out engine.

In general...
Black smoke = Fuel mixture is too rich
Blue smoke = Engine is burning oil

There can be a multitude of reasons for each condition. You will have to check each during your diagnosis

the chocke valve could be stuck on , there is a small diaphragm at the fuel return valve , if it leaks , you will be sucking gas into intake [ vacuum line under carb .]
