Hmmm... If what you're saying, is that despite the fact that your high and low needles are screwed all the way in, your engine still floods, and loads of fuel comes out your exhaust, it can mean that you have a bad carburetor. I'd suggest you change it. PEACE!

In future, Danny, buy plugs in sets of threes, or more. At first, you'll find you get a lot of plug-fouling, but as you get the hang of tuning your engine, you'll find one plug lasts longer.

Brilliant Ok thanks for the advice the plugs spark really well when testing but I don't know what it does when it is screwed into engine I've had a plug sparking well before and won't start then got a new plug and all was fine with the new plug
