I think it is very rich and obviously I had adjusted the mixture to compensate for an unknown air leak. However if I adjust the mixture leaner it will not start at all. . . .
White smoke is either vaporized unburned fuel or oil. If too rich and burning, black smoke.
Smell the "white smoke." does it smell like fuel or oil?
You note, "if I adjust the mixture leaner, it will not start at all." Sure sign the engine is already too lean.
Again, suggest flooding the engine, attempt to start. If it starts,runs then dies, mixture is too lean.
According to my Bosch ref info, WUR CP on yr. 86+ 930's cold is 1.4-1.8 bar (@25C/75F. Warm is 3.75+/- 0.2 bar.
