Re: shorty spark plugs
My buddy is running some Accel shorty plugs and they foul pretty easy. Is there something better he can use? Must be the same length as the Accel shorty plugs.
Oil or fuel fouled?
Assuming fuel fouled are the plugs too cold of a heat range as that can cause them to foul easy & in that case try hotter heat range plugs if your 100% sure timing & carb tuning is where it belongs.
Esp base timing when running non GM aftermarket cam that generally requires 2x-3x more base timing then stock gm cam does & when base timing is retartded it upsets the vacuum signal/low vacuum to carb causing running rich issues.
But if plug heat range is correct for application & plugs foule fairly quick then you likely have timing/carb tuning issues that need to be addressed that are causing plugs of proper heat range to foul.
I am also assuming plug wires,coil,cap & rotor,air filter (not clogged/dirty causing rich mixture) are all in good cond here too and if they are not in good cond they can be part of issues causing plug fouling too.
