If you can't fix it, get someone qualified to look at it. If it's running that rich it'l burn out your catalytic converter.

Do a tune-up. I would bet money that if you pulled off you distributor and checked inside that all the contacts are corroded. Buy a new cap and rotor (pretty cheap) and you will notice a pretty good difference. I have gone through this with my 91.
