Gentlemen, I'm having problems with my 1954 Super A Tractor fouling the plugs after about 15 hrs. of use. The plug I am using is an AC Delco C87. Is it not hot enough? I have just eliminated everything electrical by changing the points condensor, plug wires, Distributor cap and coil. She is still fouling up the plugs. Also I have been told that she may be running very rich as she smokes whenever the engine is reved up. Would an autolite 386 plug work?

If black smoke, it is rich. Lowering the float level,measuring the main jet, being assured it is not being choked (choke plate full off) Clean aircleaner, and no air restrictions.

If it is gray blue smoke that hangs in the air it is using oil, and will likely be a candidate for overhaul. Jim
