Does it run good with the plug replaced by a new one? If so, bad valve guide or valve stem seal causing it to foul maybe?

Any chance a valve seal was damaged or forgotten maybe?

Make sure #5 and #7 plug wires are on the right plug. They are next to each other in the firing order and next to each other on the engine. Real easy to get them wrong.
