rich fuel help

Hello, I am looking for some help or direction.

I have a stock untouched (except for some smog errors, blocked inputs) 1986 ford F150 straight six, four point nine liters. Note: At the door opening it says it is a 9/1985, I bought it new. The carburetor, single barrel, and what looks like a solenoid on the right side, and a pot on the butterfly shaft. This carburetor has a tag on it that reads: motorcraft E5IE UA A 5 D 19.

My fuel mixture is way too rich especially at low RPM, most likely due to the smog ports blocked. I am looking for a place where I can buys smaller jet sizes, gaskets, explanation of the solenoid function.

thx
