|seafoam56||Well the engine is running really rich...it seems like no matter what i do with the carb it runs the same...everything is brand new...its a crate 350/400 horse...once on the road moving it seems fine...but its been that way since i had it running...I will check the plugs and see if i can notice anything|

It could be either an ignition problem or a fuel problem. (yea, I know, real good answer! LOL)
It could be a plug misfiring from being a tad lean, or worn, or partially fouled, or a wire breaking down too.
It could also be an occasional drip of fuel from one of the primary carb nozzles, momentarily fattening up the mixture. You can look down the carb with a flashlight and watch for the drip.
The ignition problem may take a little more checking.

engine has quick miss
i notice that my engine has a miss in it...i watch the tach as it idles at 600rpms i notice it dips to like 550 every few rotations...could this be an ignition issue...its kinda like a miss fire....you can hear it in the exhaust...or could this be a carb/gas problem...open for thoughts.
