Carbon Buildup

I put a condensor in it but the plugs are getting extreme carbon buildup, I checked the dwell but it is ony registering around 2400. I tried to adjust it by moving the distributor but the needle doesn't move. The car runs great with lots of power but I am confused about the dwell...
Is .024 correct for the gap? I also checked the compression and all cylinders are between 125-128. What is causing the plug fouling?

Thanks For your help!
