Blowing smoke and idling to high and to low

I have a 1980 Datsun 280zx and I finally got it to start I donít know how was just tinkering and poof. It was idling super low and I tried to gas it in neutral to see if I could get it to take. It didnít rev up maybe a little but not enough for it actually sound like it. I got out and there was a giant cloud of smoke that had no recognizable smell to it. Then I went back through and took out a couple spark plugs and went to do it again and it fired up but idled crazy high and my fan seemed like it was running overtime. When I gassed it just a tiny bit definitely didnít come down as fast as it should and went way to high up for the amount of gas I gave it. Iím stumped so if you have any suggestions let me know and thank you for reading this!

Polite suggestion: please use sentences, preferably with punctuation. Much easier to understand.

I suspect it is the ignition. The starter is making contact but it sure sounds like the ignition circuit is not.
