I agree with Vinniekq2, how long has it been sitting? If your not confident in rebuilding the carb, buying a rebuild or a new one may be the way to go...do everything you said and don't forget about replacing the air filter. If the car is running rich, your getting more fuel than air, a plugged air filter can give you this effect...check that out first.
Congratulations young man and best of luck.
