    Default Oil on Spark Plugs

    Hi - I have a 90hp Mariner 2 stroke outboard motor. On removal of the spark plugs I noticed they were full of oil. Is this normal or is there a problem. All 3 the spark plugs had oil on them (2 stroke oil).
    Thanks

    Yes - it was a day after running for about 4 hours. I wanted to replace the plugs and noticed it.

    Your running a motor that burns oil and gas combo.It's normal to have a residue left.
    Do a compression and spark test.
    That tests normal then I wouldn't worry.J

    ALL--repeat--ALL plugs in a two strokes look like they are running cold and wet after any period of prolonged idling.
