Mercedes Benz 380 SEL V8 car is blowing smoke from running too rich. Bosch fuel injection system. How can I adjust mixture and where is the adjusting screw? Is there any other reason why its blowing petrol smoke?

The mixture should only be set using correct calibration equipment as the settings are extremely critical, I would be more inclined to be thinking that it may just be a faulty plug or lead causing this problem, I would be looking here first.
