    just to get it straight, You had oil in the holes or oil on your spark plugs themselves?

    yep VALVE COVER GASKETS. I had the same problem when i first one my rexes. The idiot never put them on. The oil gets in the holes and the eventuallly makes it in the plugs. Suck the oil out with something.spray nozzle will do. Then take the plugs out and clean as much as possible.

    blow by- oil seeping past the ring to the plug causing it not to fire is another option!

    Now, that is the kind of intelligence I'd expect B)

    sorry if I sounded like an ass in my last comment, but it pisses me off when people see that the problem has been addressed and an answer surmised, but they have to make some crazy ass comments.

    Let us know if we can help you with anything else g2ooo :)
