I'm pretty sure that if you don't know what you're doing already that you should be having someone do that professionally.

i know what i am doing. i replaced the head gasket in the stupid thing and it fired up. it is running rich, i can smell the raw fuel coming out of it. if it were a volkswagen it wouldn't have this problem.

Dude omfg we have the same car and exact same problem. Check the gasket inbetween the top and bottem of the carb for gas leaking into your 3rd little intake hole thats supposed to be for air only and good luck bro.
