While diagnosing a miss after startup, I pulled the plugs and noticed that all of them smell like raw fuel and a slightly damp. #3 is wet with it. What would cause this? Pressure Regulator? The car is not running too rich even when cold (judging by exhaust smell)

thanks,
DG

DG,
If your plugs are wet with fuel then you are running too rich whether you smell it or not. I assume your car is fuel injected? What year? If it's in the 75-78 280Z range send me a direct e-mail and I'll run through all the stuff you need to do to find/correct the problem. If you keep running this rich the raw gas will wash down the sides of your cylinder walls, dilute your oil and eventually trash your engine. I have personal experience with this. This is not good.
