1983 528e - Running WAY Too Rich - Please Help

Hello All...

It's been 1 week since washed motor.

* Hood Open In Hot Sun Every Day Since

* Dist Cap Replaced

* AFM Checked

* New Fuel Pressure Reg Installed

* Installed New Platinum Plugs...

Car fired right-up, but quickly loaded-up -w/black smoke from exhaust. Would NOT IDLE, so I unplugged ICV so would idle, as then drove about 5 miles - car ran like rocket, but had to keep foot on gas at lights.

Tried to start 2 hrs later - BARELY started -CHUGGED to store with foot to floor. Wouldn't go faster than about 20 mph. BARELY made it home 1 mile. Next day wouldn't start....

Pulled wet plugs - cleaned, re-installed - started, but CHUGGED again, wouldn't idle - Revved for about 3 minutes - loaded-up again, now NO START.

Please H E L P...

I don't have enough hair to pull-out !

Thanks Much,
