But it emits a lot of smoke out the tailpipe, its heavy and white.
It'a likely burning coolant as you may not have got the carb base heater port plugged with the adaptor block. Sometimes they don't quite cover the hole completely. A lot of folks simply block the port with JB weld and a bit of window screening.

Wow! Beats the hell out of the $420 I paid about 6 years ago. I guess they are trying to clear the stock of the things. Probably not a lot of demand with increased emissions testing and fewer EA81's on the road.

I checked it and its all sealed off, well now that im working on it during the daylight hours, the smoke is actually blue, thick and out of the tailpipe?????????
Blue or black?
Black would be too rich of a mixture.
Blue would be oil burning - either rings or valve stem seals - most likely valve stem seals.
Are you sure it's not just burning it off after sitting and having some oil seep into a cylinder? I don't know how long it sat while you did the conversion, but sometimes that will happen with older engine's. I've had plenty of EA81's with bad stem seals that would burn a bit of oil till they warmed up - it seeps in while they are sitting.
