shorty plugs

I use accel-416ss (14mm .75 reach shorty header plug) when I tried to replace them I find they have been discontinued. Looking for a replacement does anyone have some advice.

Is it gasketed or tapered seat?

Did some research for you. Try this NGK 2771 or UR5

Accel 416ss plugs are available, Summit has them.

Do a parts search for "shorty spark plugs", they also carry NGK's.

I read this on another site; to replace the Accel short plugs, use Motorcraft SP486. This was a SBC application, but I don't remember the Accel number the Motorcraft replaced. It has also got to be cheaper. Butch/junior stocker.

The 416SS is listed but at the top of the page it has N/A in red, the link you included is the 416S-4 plug, the difference is copper electrode in the S-4 and silver in the SS.

For guys racing for bucks and or glory copper performance versus silver or platinum is an important consideration.

It would be great if someone, manufacturer, vendor, etc. could get a list of all of the short plugs out there. And then also include the heat ranges.

I've been searching for a set of 'cold' short plugs for almost 3 weeks, with no avail (when I say cold I mean colder than what I'm running.) My search method is heading off to Advance Auto and measuring plugs tha they might have in stock, but I'm sure you can imagine the issues I'm having asking the counter person.

Another crapper to this is that many of manufacturers don't list if their plugs are short or not. I say this based on my experience with NGK's that I'm trying to replace presently. I'm running NGK 5858 (XR4) and they are much shorter than the stock AC Delco and they are not considered shorty plugs by NGK????? But I'm sure that I can't get the wires on the AC Delco's and I can on the NGK, that aren't considered shorty's, with alot of room to spare.

sorry if i took so long, NGK shortys code is: BPR6EFS, this is the long thread model used in alu heads, the ones for cast iron heads i believe have same code with no final S, just ask to the parts store or have a look at the NGK website.
