High HC is a result of misfire (unburnt fuel). I would start with secondary ignition, cap, rotor, wires, plugs, coil, & OR vacuum leak in the intake area. How old is the O2 sensor?? What was the last time engine tune(secondary ign.) was checked? If new plugs are needed don't forget to check compression!
