Go to inputs.conf under where you define the input port, add:

no_appending_timestamp = true

From inputs.conf.spec documentation file:

no_appending_timestamp = [true|false]
* If this attribute is set to true, Splunk does NOT append a timestamp and host to received events.
* NOTE: Do NOT include this attribute if you want to append timestamp and host to received events.
* Default is false.

It will be nearly impossible to help you without MUCH more information. Is this coming in as Syslog? What is in your *.conf files?
