Mine was doing that also try gapping your spark plugs to the right gap and make sure your wires are in good condition. Seeing that your gap may be wrong or never set they spark woill try jumping through thew wire and causing bad wires.

watch out where the plug boot meets the plug, if the boot is damaged at all where the rubber begins to meet the metal, a spark will jump from wire to the cyl head. Happened to me a while ago, look at all the plug wires when its dark out and engine running to see if you can find a spark jump
