Black smoke from exhaust ,Why? (video)

Right about 00:21 , black smoke comes from the left exhaust. Why? is there maybe a problem with the engine or carb adjustments?
After 00:15 Jeep is in 1st gear ,close to full throttle..



thank you

i am guessing you have not had any replies because the smoke really is not visible. i could not see it at all. have you experienced it otherwise? black smoke is typically oil.

I would second kjhibbs on both points, I cant see the black smoke either and black is an allmost absolute sign of burning oil.

Incorrect. Black smoke is fuel burning and indicates a rich mixture. Blue smoke would indicate oil.

If you don't have time to do it right, how will you ever find time to do it again?

good call, fredrok is right, it is fuel. check your mixture screws, and your air filter. the video does not help though, any other info would be great.

I will go with you Fredrok, I have been lucky to have only had a few vehicles that ended with oil burning problems and it allways looked like black or gray smoke to me but I am color blind too, so I will go with you.

Can't tell **** from the video, but if you guys are at a higher elevation than you have the engine tuned for, it's going to run fat.
