Bloody. H. E. double hockey sticks!

Ok. So. I pulled my plugs to change them out today and I found them to be black with a very small amount of white under the tip. Also I found about a teaspoon's worth of oil in all four as well. Any ideas ladies and gents? Any/all help is always appreciated.

Was the oil on the outside or on the tip?
If it was on the outside you may have a seal leaking, if it is on the tip you may have a leaking valve or rings.
The black sugests running rich or the oil burining.

Hey Spinner. If you were to look directly down onto the plug it would be on top of the nut....that's the best way I know how to describe it...I'll try and get a picture a little later.

If you meen on the ceramic where the socket goes than that is a external leak from the tube.
I think Corbin has done them.
If it is on the Electrode, or the part that is in the motor than there might be more problem.
Hope that helps.

How's that? Otherwise, I translate it as "spam."

Maybe Armando's one of our new foreign members that struggles with translating to english? I'd hate to run someone off because we can't understand them. But who knows!
