PlatinumDude is right, don't use Earthquake on Infernape cos its Fighting attacks already provide enough coverage.

For Weavile, if you insist on keeping it, try one of these sets:

Jolly nature
Life Orb
EVs: 252 Attack, 4 Sp. Def, 252 Speed
- Swords Dance
- Ice Shard / Ice Punch
- Night Slash
- Low Kick

With this set, Ice Punch/Ice Shard and Night Slash serve as your main STAB. Swords Dance can help boost that high Attack stat if you can survive the next hit. Low Kick can help you against heavy opponents. You will need to do a hell lot of breeding to get Ice Punch, Ice Shard can be considered if you need priority since Weavile's strategy is to get the first hit in. Just watch out for Mach Punch users like Conkeldurr and Breloom.

Or try this one if it's more your taste:

Jolly nature
Life Orb / Choice Band
EVs: 252 Attack, 4 Sp. Def, 252 Speed
- Pursuit
- Low Kick
- Ice Punch / Night Slash
- Ice Shard

Like as before, you need to breed to get Ice Punch but Night Slash can also be considered for your main STAB. Pursuit can help you hit hard against switching opponents, Low Kick helps you deal with heavy Steels and Ice Shard is for priority. Make sure Weavile's nature is Jolly cos it needs the Speed stat boost and it doesn't invest in special attacks anyway.

Weavile's Pressure ability allows you to eat away at your opponents' PP, eventually crippling them by forcing them to Struggle.
