how much oil consumption are you seeing? Also, are you sure the plugs are oil fouled and not fouled by carb being too rich? One more question, all cylinders or a specific cyliner? If you did total rebuild, cyl rings may not be properly oriented letting oil by... how many mile on rebuild ? Are you sure you've driven enough miles to properly break-in the engine ?

did you put a new set of valve covers on there too? if you did do they have a baffle in there?if not, at cruise rpms it'll suck up lots of oil through the PVC valve.

I did change to tall Moroso covers,and the old ones did have a baffle.But the previous owner just had duct tape covering the opening on it.The morosos dont.
