View Full Version : TR2/3/3A TR3 plugs and random smell....

Okay, so I pulled the plugs and the rear most plug was kinda wet and oily. The second from the rear had a little build up and the front two were cleaner than the that one. So I cleaned them up and put them back, checked gap of coarse and started it up. It went back to idling and running as normal. I also rebuilt the fuel pump and cleaned all that up, so I am in good shape there. Not sure what was up with that rear plug being wet and oily though? Also on another note, sometimes it smells like I'm burning oil or something. Any thoughts on the plugs or smell?

The main reason I examine the plugs is to see how the mixture is doing.

Finding the rear two a bit wet would have me looking at the mixture on the rear carb in particular though if it had been awhile I would probably step through the entire sequence of valves - points gap - timing - sync - then mixture.
