Pull the plugs and inspect them to see if it's running too rich. Be sure the vacuum lines are correct and everything is holding vacuum, no vac. leaks.

These engines need to be timed in a specific manner, not just turning the distributor while using a timing light like non computer controlled engines are timed.
