OK, got a new vacuum guage, reset transfer slots front and rear, started over with mixture screws,
Vacuum is 18 in park, 15 in gear, mixture screws are very sensitive to tiny changes, they are both a little over 1.5 turns out.
Idle seems stable and has snappy response. Still very smelly exhaust, no smoke at idle now.
Going to go drive it now and see what i have.
Fine, I concede, I will pick up tune up parts this week lol....see if it helps.

I give up.....runs perfect, it could pass for fuel injection at this point, its snappy everywhere, no bogs or stumbles and pulls clean from every rpm......
Smokes and smells....behind me, cruising speed, its clean....but idling in the lane way, smokes, accelerating, smokes....def dark, def fuel....
I give....

Whats the tune up on the carb now?

Smoke in exhaust at idle...are you sure there is not something blocking one of the idle wells in the metering block
Raw un emulsified un mixed fuel at idle or something.

Ignition issue?.... very odd...

Transfer slots squared
Now sitting on my shelf....
Got pssd off and threw on my 650DP and will see how that works in the morning on my way to work.
70/76
Jet extensions
idle is much snappier, mixture screws 1.5 turns out.
Haven't driven it till the morn.
If it isn't any better then I will have to go deeper I guess.
Thanks for the help with it and I will report back tommorow.
