Autolite 386. I think they are far more reliable than Champion D18 or D21.

I think there is a different non-resistor plug for mag tractors, someone will know that number.

I've never had a problem with Champions. Alot of the time D21's are a better choice even when the chart says to use D16's. Autolites are a good choice too

Battery ignition: Autolite 386 (or 388 if the tractor is used only light loads - parades, etc).

Magneto ignition: Autolite 3116

i use champion in my tractors, and havent had a problem so why change. i bought an old tractor 2 autolite's and 2 champion's and one autolite broke off in the head when removing them. upon inspection of both i found champion had more meat by the threads and was built better.

I use Champion D21's if the tractor isn't going to do much of anything. Anything overhauled recently or worked hard gets Champion D18Y's. I just bought my first box of imported Champions, and even though I haven't installed one yet, I have a sinking feeling that I might be looking for alternatives soon.

I'm with Brad, anything but Champion. Nothing but trouble for me. NGK in small engines, AC or Autolite in my tractors.
I bought a set of Champion Platinums for my Nissan Maxima many years ago. Six months later I had all kinds of trouble with it. $800 dollars later at the Nissan dealer the mechanic found that the car would run with all the relays taken out under the hood. He finally found out that my new plugs were leaking voltage and running it back through the ground side of the computer. Sound impossible?? All he did was put in a set of NGK's and that fixed it!!
All the rest of it was labor trying to figure it out.
