I assume you checked all the basic stuff like plugs/wires, compression, etc?

Does it run lean?

i replaced all that. The pos weber didnt have a return line cand the float bowl was full so it over flowed making the car uber rich shooting out black smoke and yup, fouling plugs. so it was a carb issue causing all of this. stock carb, new plugs, and lots of seafoam fixed it.

I'm pretty sure a weber carb is not supposed to have a return line. The float and float needle regulate the float level. If the carb is overflowing either the float needle is just stuck (happens if the carb is gummed up or corroded inside) or your fuel pressure is way too high (should be 3-5 psi).
