Is the heat riser in the exhaust stuck closed? If so, it will always direct exhaust through the passage in the intake manifold. This could lead to your carb boiling out the fuel.

The charcoal is most likely coming from the Charcoal canister through the Purge line. Either disconnect it or add a canister style fuel filter to stop the junk from getting into the float bowl.
