Carbs

Hey! My Exhaust Fumes Smell Really Rich. What The Deal? Does My Carb Need Ajusting? It's A Newer Carb (quadra-jet) I've Only Had It For About 5 Or 6 Months.

Check your timing and ya I'd consider adjusting your carb! Maybe your float and or needle and seat is out of rig.

You should really detail what engine, its components, mileage, etc...

I agree, check timing and check for vacuum leaks...then look at the carb.
