The same plugs you use with points.

If you bought their coil, the instructions will tell you to widen the plug gap.

The FORD TRACTOR OEM 4-cylinder engines are spec'd at 14mm spark plugs, gapped at .025"-.028". The standard supplier were they Champion H10 and then the Champion H12 was released , a hotter plug. Around the same time the AUTO-LITE 437 plug was introduced as well, also a hotter plug than the H10. I've used all of these on my N's and never have had any problems with any of them. I use the Champion H12 or the AUTO-LITE 437's depending on what the auto parts store has stocked at the time. It doesn't matter if you have the OEM 6V/POS GRN system or a 12V/NEG GRN switch out job, or even EI -the plugs are the same. I guess some use other equivalents like the NTK but that is your call and your $$$ and wouldn't call it as an 'upgrade' myself. How do you gage performance? I was going to try the NTK's once but nobody stocked them locally but all said they could order them. I was doug a tune-up now and chose to stick with tried and true and in stock. Nowadays the Champion H12 is also listed as their 512 part number and the AUTO-LITE 437 is the same as the 216 part number.

NGK spark plugs feature what is known as 'trivalent plating'. This is a silver-or-chrome coloured finish on the threads that is designed to provide corrosion resistance against moisture, chemicals and weathering. The coating also acts as a release agent during spark plug removal.

Big plus they are made in the good old US of A... Up-grade are not over your china plugs your call...

NGK has plug manufacturing plants in both countries. Chrysler for one is a BIG domestic customer. Doubt US domestic orders are fulfilled by products made in Japan plants and shipped here.

Like most large companies, NGK makes their products in many countries. Manufacturing locations include the USA. I suspect the only way to tell where a spark plug was made is by the label on the box (if it has one).

(quoted from linkedin)
Starting with a single product in 1936, NGK's extraordinary growth can be attributed to a philosophy of manufacturing the product where it is going to be used. In fact, a substantial number of NGK Spark Plugs and oxygen sensors sold in the United States are made right here in America. One of the benefits of this approach is the ability to work closely with manufacturers in developing products tailored specifically to their needs. The most tangible manifestations of the success of this philosophy have been the construction of fourteen factories in eight nations throughout the world, as well as NGK Spark Plugs being specified as original equipment by the majority of the world's auto manufacturers.

LOL! I just bought a "Murray" thermostat, box says "Made in Israel", thermostat is embossed "Germany".

Quite ironic!

I had been turning wrenches for a while myself and may have missed something like that. Thanks for posting.

The last time I bought O2 sensors for my Jeep I bought NGK and they were made in USA.
