    Smoke at idle.


    Hey everyone. Just got the '64 chevelle going!! I finally got the 'glide rebuilt and added a high stall converter. The car rips now! One thing though: At idle it seems to smoke a bit (not blue, more like a grey/dark smoke). The exhaust smells rich and it'll make your eyes water/burn in a second. I'm thinking too rich of an idle mixture??? Also, from a standstill, when you mash the gas, it leaves a noticeable cloud of smoke...(same color). The car runs strong though, and doesn't bog or hesitate...

    I'm leaning towards the rich mixture but any ideas will be awesome!
