I have a problem

I have a 67 with a small block 350. This camaro has been stored for quite a few years (5). It ran pretty well before storage. I replaced the fuel completely and started it the other day.. The car will not idle and after a period it smokes with a heavy smell of fuel...plugs are soot covered with a smell of fuel. I first thought maybe needed new plugs, then maybe no spark...both are not the problem. I'm wondering if the carb might be the problem or maybe a gasket issue... The oil smells like gas and the radiator seems fine ( no indication of contaminates).

Re: I have a problem

I would suspect varnish in the needle seat area. As suggested by Mike, a good cleaning would be on the agenda.
