Had the sled out again last night and this time fouled plugs kept me from playing :dazed:. I didn't have plugs to put in her so I had to put her away :( . I couldn't find the box of plugs I bought last year, boy I guess if I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any at all...G

Sometimes you can take a propane torch and burn off the plug and get a bit more life out of it... especially if they are oil fouled...

The difference between a "fouled" plug and one not fouled is that the latter is clean and dry. As long as you can clean and dry a plug, it should work again -unless it has actually failed in some way; ie, cracked, failed resistor, just plain worn out from too much use, etc. There is most likely a problem that needs fixing like carbs that are sending too much fuel for some reason, etc. Water, ice, dirt, stray unfiltered "stuff" all can cause problems. so can a sticking or faulty "choke" (enrichment valve). Find the problem and correct it. Dry/clean the plugs. GO.
