If the spark plug connectors were flooded with oil, you have a very serious oil leak somewhere.
Ziggy/David, if you're unable to locate the source of the oil leak, go to a parts store and buy a small bottle of oil system leak detector dye and either rent or borrow a black light. Pour the dye in where you put oil in. Run the engine for about 10 minutes and turn the black light on. You will see a yellowish-green or orange glow where the light hits the detection dye. Then fix the problem. You'll need to replace your plug wires once the leak is fixed.
