Spark Plugs

I'm getting a little oil fouling on just one cylinder....might be a defective valve seal because it only smokes on start up after it's been sitting awhile....350 motor only has 8000 miles on it....don't know what I'm going to do about it at this point but I was thinking of putting a hotter plug in that one cylinder....is that kosher? to have one R45 plug and seven R44 or should I put all eight hotter plugs in it? thanks.

yes that is a practice quite common...sometimes 1 or all 4 cnr plugs are moew fouled due to the longer runners on the inlet manifold, and a hotter plug fixes the issue.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
