Change the plugs and hope that's not aluminum on them there plugs. What is the heat range? What happened the last time this thing ran normally?

Thanks for posting the pick for me Jake, I don't have a foto bucket account.

OK, this is where i'm at, Bill hasn't gotten back with me at all about this, but i sent the same picture of what the spark plug looks like and am waiting to hear what he says about all that you can see from the plug,

Cool

had to go put the kids to bed, ok I have figured out part of the problem, the carb springs were not totally closing the butterflys so when the motor cranked it could not suck the gas it needed down into the cylinder and it was already running rich so it didn't want anymore gas. now I pull up on the accelerator pedal it closes completely the butterflies and when it cranks it wants to start up alot better now. I think that part of the carbon build up on the plugs are coming from the start up, It is running really rich but it only has 84 jets square, I wouldn't think that it was way over jeted, My theory about the plugs comes down to what has changed since I last changed the Autolite AR3935's, the gas is the only thing, around here they run alot of ethinal in the gas and alot of lawn mowers are contantly getting torn up from the gas, that might be it.

I have a brand new set of plugs in there now this weekend i'll pull them out and take a peak again, again the only thing that I've changed is the gas It has the same plugs and timing and everything, I will see whats going on but the plug looks narlly and I don't want to pull anymore out that look like that, I have only shot it with a 100HP shot since getting the car back from Bill.
