What would be the likely cause of fouled #1 plug on a 175 engine that has 150lbs compression on each cylinder. It has been this way for a couple years.

have you checked the plug wire? i dont recommend using anything but solid wire plug wires and stay way away from champion plugs. if the compression is that good the only other suggestion would be to check for a stuck or broken oil ring. is the plug oily, sooty, or a buildup of carbon?

Randy,Thanks for the come back, the plug wires are wire and about 4 yrs old. Also the plug is more sooty than carbon or oily.Frank

My d17 was doing the same thing when I bought it. Got rid of the Champion plugs first, then found that the carb was seeping gas and the engine would siphon it to the problem cylinder. I just started shutting the gas off until I get time to go through the carb. There was another article on this site about someone having the same problem.

Roger,You could be right about the carb leak, because everything else that was discussed on this post did'nt seem to fit this situation,was planning to redo carb anyway,and will see if this helps. Thanks to you Roger,Rick, Dave,and Mary,Steve and others for your help. Frank Mann
