    My Charger was a 318 2bbl originally and I tinkered with the carburetor frequently over the years knowing that a 400 b motor was coming. I drove both the Charger and my “donor car 4 years and then the issue disappeared. Now that lovable little 318 and the donor car are gone.
    Mild to moderate black smoke and a nasty flat spot were always a problem with that little carburetor.

    I always thought white smoke meant a new Pope had been chosen.

    It does sound like there is coolant getting into the cylinders if it is actually smoke.
    We have a board sponsor who is proficient in rebuilding carbs. Send it to them and it will be right.

    blue smoke is oil, white smoke is water, black smoke is fuel , I don't know if you've ran it long enough to clean out, I just put a 360 in my daughters ramcharger and it blew white smoke for 15 minutes, had me kinda worried cause I didn't build it, bought it off a guy who built it for a car he never put it in , but it cleared up and runs good and no more smoke

      From the research I have been doing, coolant leaking would produce a white smoke that would have a sweet smell. It is also more of a steam type that dissipates quickly. If you put your hand up to it it would leave residue on you hand. The smoke I get is bluish and has a very clear fuel like smell.
