Check the oil in the engine, see if it smells like there is gasoline in the oil. Black smoke would indicate a fuel burn issue, which means there could be a rather dominant presence of gas in the oil pan. This is more common than you might think in an engine that has sat for a while, the gas becomes varnish and causes the float in the carb to stick, allowing the gas to run through the engine. The thinned gas could also be causing the leaking around the plug.
If this is the case and there is gas in the oil (the two smell nothing alike, so it's easy to tell if there is fuel in the oil), then you want to start with cleaning the carb out, making sure the float is not sticking. You'll also need to drain and replace the oil and likely clean the spark plug from where the oil can get into the engine head.

it could be the stator in the engine check the voltage with the volt meter when its running if its low check connections on battery & voltage if its below 12.5 volts then its the stator but the only thing is the engine should run with-out the battery so there is something else going on there is a fuse in the electrical system if theres a short that fuse will blow & engine will stall

Could be a few things, First, you say it's getting fuel, but is the fuel fresh? It may have water in it and act like your engine. Did this problem just start happening? Did you happen to ride over something that may have sheared the key on the flywheel? This would throw the timing off on the engine. If you can try to start it while spraying gas into the carb throat and it keeps running, then it could just be a dirty caburetor or a misadjusted carb float. Good luck, Bill
