Everytime I start my car in the morning, it shoots out black smoke for 1-2 minutes. Then, when in neutral shoots more when I rev. Then , when driving shoots when my rpm is above 3000. I don't know if this iss it but a few months ago my throttle opener solenoid messed up, so I removed it.

The car is running rich, sync the carbs and adjust the mixture screws.
This will cure the black smoke and give you more power.

You are running rich!

Hopefully you don't have those huge @$!%@! Hitachi carburetors. Get ahold of some SU carbs (check for state and federal regualtions); they are much better.
