OK any other ideas. adjusted carb again and have it set to the best of my ability, I am clueless.
Bill : Black smoke is an indicator of a carb with too rich a mixture. Please recheck your manual and set the main jet adjustment exactly as prescribed....If that doesn't do the trick, post again...By the way, I doubt it's the ignition b-u-t....

Bill S: you need to work on the needlle valve &/or the float.
