1982 Bmw 320i

I am new to this site. I have a question about a fixer upper I just purchased. I am trying to get it to run good. I have put plugs and wires, rotor and rotor cap. It runs but it misses. #3 cylinder plug oils up very bad. Could I get lucky and just need valve adjustment, or something more serious like a cracked ring. Any suggestions as to what it could be?
