you need to do an oil pressure test, it sounds like there is no oil pressure
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for your quick response, however I think your answer is not correct, because my spark plugs is full of oil. Petrol is also coming out of my new Holly 2280 carburetor. Could it be my timing? What is the worst scenario in this situation?

What you describe are the correct results if the engine did not have oil pressure for even a short period of time, and you continued to run the my answer is absolutely correct.
