Black smoke is a sure sign of worn injectors leaking more fuel, thus the fuel air ratio incorrect.

That's what I thought, injectors seem awfully expensive can you recommend anywhere please?

Not necessarily... if the fuel isn't being atomised correctly by the injector, then it wont burn correct thus black smoke
yes over fueling can also cause black smoke
