    Default spark plugs deposits

    I am working on a Gale Buccaneer 5 horse motor. One spark plug has tiny beads of mtal on the electrode. What causes this and how serious is it? I have not started it yet and don't know it's history.

    Perhaps do a compression test.--------Motor may have overheated.-----Motor mat have been overloaded and had issues with lugging.
