Hello. It is very possible that it is the spark plug gap or the wire connection. You need to make sure that they are gapped and that the wires snap on tightly. You should also make sure that you are using the original replacement spark plug as off-brand plugs will not work well on this engine. You also want to make sure that everything else is installed correctly if this was not occurring before you changed these parts.
