Any ideas as to why there is oil around the 3rd spark plug on my 78? I degreased the motor and the oil reappeared so I know it isn't just spilt oil. Also, when I punch it, I can smell the oil burning.

Thanks

Make sure your sparkplugs are in far and tight enough. Mine were doing the same thing until my dad told to crank them in.

Hope this helps you out.

<b>RE: Oil around Spark Plug</b>

Steven, What ever you do-DO NOT CRANK THE PLUGS DOWN. You'll strip out the threads. If its a little seaping out don't worry about it. Mine does the same. Bob
