when you do mean oil fouled. are they going bad in a week.if so it is your valve guides,valve seals,and even the piston rings. maybe its time to rebuild the engine.

You might have Plugs that have too cold of a heat range. Double check to see if they are the right ones and gapped properly (not too much gap). If the heat range is too cold the plugs will not "burn" off the deposits that build up on them. If the heat range is too hot the plugs will cause a hot spot in the engine and can lead to detonation and pre-ignition, so be carefull if you go up in heat range. Good Luck...
