A Champion RJ12YC can be used also. Gap is .035 for these plugs. BTW do not use any AC R45TS plugs if the pistons have domes. The S stands for extended tip and will hit the top of the domed pistons on 11.0+ compression motors.

Thanks for the response. I pulled the plug out and there is a Tapered plug in there and the AC r45 look to be flat plugs. Is there a pic of how to tell the difference of heads? I am not sure what my heads need.
