Hi there, I own a 1979 Austin Mini Cooper, Beautiful car although it always fouls out with the spark plugs?? And not the same one either ?? I'm getting so annoyed at it I just want a straight answer the...


Are the plugs getting fuel fouled or oil fouled? If it is oil getting into the combustion chamber then you are looking at either badly worn cylinders, bad oil rings on the pistons, or bad valve stem seals. If they are getting fuel fouled then your carburetor is dumping way too much fuel into the engine and I would suspect that maybe the float is stuck or not properly adjusted.

this sounds like oil rings are worn or broken and that would need all rings replacing, have you done a compression test? if not it would be helpful to do one and compare when hot and cold,

1979 mariner 80 hp outboard engine carburator flooding over with fuel


It sounds like maybe the float is sticking open on the carburetor. Check the bowl and needle for debris. The float may be worn out and needs replaced, or another part is bad. if nothing else, put a shut-off valve in the fuel line to stem the flow when the motor is not running.
