If the carburetor is set so rich that one plug is getting fouled, ALL of the plugs would be fouling.

I'm wondering if maybe the tractor does not get worked hard enough? Possibly the cylinders are all sooted up and it is a piece of that soot that comes loose, and THAT is what is fouling the plugs?

I will suggest starting it up, and then take it out and make it WORK. HARD. Put it on the road in 5th gear and pull the throttle back. Take it up and down a few hills. Don't stop until after the heat gauge has moved into the "run" zone.

OK thanks I'll try that. It doesn't get worked hard at all.

Yep hard work maybe the ticket. You also might try a quart of ATF to say 3-5 gal of gas to help clean out carbon in the cylinders. Also when was the last time you cleaned the air cleaner oil tub and refilled it with new oil. I have seen so many of them that did not get serviced that they had water and so much dirt in them that the carb had to run rich

Thanks for the tip. The oil in the filter is clean just changed it recently.
