Number 1 looks like it might be the wrong plug , or weak spark, just going off a chart I have , it looks too black compared to the others

far left is either rich, weak spark, low compression or slight oil past the rings or valve stem seals.
The pics aren't good enough to see.

Need to see them up close. not that reading plugs that old will tell you anything anyway.
