Have you checked all bulbs and connections including reays, are correct way round, Ive had experience before when a bulb , even with offset tangs was fitted wrong way and it gave real headache till I foundi it , sometimes the live can run through ground and not burn out but cause havoc especially when some items are ground switched (horn?) and others are live switched (lights) Electrics defy all logic in my opinion, remenber that electricity ,like water, will always take the easiest route and work from there
IT LIVES!!! We got it to run last night and drove it around the parking lot.
It still idles at just around 2,000 rpm (per dash tach) but it really ran great for not having the carbs tuned, balanced, adjusted or the linkage tightened, adjusted, and the fact that I loosened up the shaft supports to build it up with stabilizer blocks.
--- This dealer training filmstrip gives the most thorough and easy to follow description of carb adjustment I've come across. The carb section starts near the end of part one and continues at the begining of part 2.
Man Mike I gotta get my brother outta my lot with my 500. I want to work on your car so bad!!! And I can't even put it back together cuz I pressed the bearing sleeve in backwards on the drag-link... DOH!

Oh.. just realized I hadn't responded to the black/white smoke question. Watching my video above again it's white smoke for sure. So running lean I suppose
That smoke looks like its burning oil to me, too lean wouldnt produce any smoke
