Tomos targa A5 spitting black oil out Exhaust

So I just got a Tomos targa A5 2 stroke has a separate tank. It is an 1994 or 1995 don’t know anyways replaced the carb petcock value and fuel line . The previous owner had let it sit for over 1 year . I got it running and driving but the exhaust keeps getting oil in side of it and spitting black oil . I put my hand in front of the exhaust and it stained my hand with oil and any time you run it you can’t tell it’s spitting oil until you put something in front but I was putting in my shed and it poured a stream of thick black oil.Edited 1 time(s).

still got oil injection? id get rid of it and run premix. is the air filter clogged, that would make it run rich. some black oil is normal, spewing out is an issue. when it runs is it extremely smoky?

It may just be an accumulation of mostly evaporated fuel/oil mix that leaked past the old faulty petcock into and through the engine and into the muffler. I'd remove the muffler and pour some solvent in shake it a little and let it sit. After a while hose it out with water and leave it until you're sure it's dry. What's left will eventually get burned off during use.

I would just run it. It is definitely just an oil-soaked pipe. It'll burn out.
