Tried to edit my post to no avail. I will burn off residual fuel on plugs. What are resistance wires?

> Yes I did replace the plugs but the plugs appear to be fouled already

OK, that's useful information. When plugs foul rapidly, it's because the mixture is really rich, or the combustion is poor. (They can also foul from oil burning, but that won't happen very quickly.) If you have a weak spark, then that will cause the plugs to foul and in short order they'll short out and quit firing completely.

Are all the plugs fouling equally? Or are one or two fouling out faster than the others?

Have you tried running a compression check? You can buy a compression tester at your local auto parts store for about thirty bucks that will tell you something about the condition of your motor. (I think that's what showcrop was getting at with his hourmeter questions.)

> What are resistance wires?

Resistance, resistor, carbon or suppression plug wires have a graphite conductor, while standard wires have a copper conductor. The resistance reduces the RF noise generated by the ignition system so it doesn't interfere with radios. All automotive spark plug wire sets are suppression, although hotrodders are known to sometimes use copper plug wires. If you buy OEM plug wires from New Holland, they will be resistor wires, but many aftermarket plug wire kits use copper core wires. I'm not sure whether YT sells resistor or copper core plug wires.

The type of plug wire is normally marked on the jacket. If you can't read it, just pull back one of the boots and examine the conductor. If it's a solid wire, it's copper. If it consists of multiple fine black threads, it's carbon.

Thanks for the follow-up. You might want to check those plugs for fouling after a couple of hours; there still might be a problem.

Maybe the air intake system is plugged or choke stuck closed .
