Happy new year
It seems I fouled my plugs on my 36hp Okrasa. At idle for a few minutes, a quick rev blows out alittle black smoke. Could it be as easy as changing the idle jets. There's just not enough idle mixture adjustment to fix it. Any tricks would be very helpful.
Thanks

A small bump up in the initial timing cured my fat idle issues.
stock 40 horse, with a little carb rejetting.

The carbs are Solex 32 PBIC. I'm gonna go with smaller jets. I believe I am pumping in to much fuel at idle.
