Doesn't matter, but make sure it has all the adaptors.

Most any auto parts store sell them and most you can buy for less then $20 and they come with the adapters to fit all the common plug sizes. Only plug hole I have that mine will not fit in is my 1935 JD B which uses a very big plug

If you have a gas tractor the one that I got was from Harbor Freight. It was cheap and it works good.

Yea, the big plugs are tough to find adaptors for.

I took an old plug, broke out the ceramic, filled it with JB weld, redrilled & tapped with one of the smaller metric sizes in my Harbor Freight kit. Works well. Cheap spark plug taps are available at Auto Zone or similar places.
