The last time we hashed this out we came up with using Autolite 295 spark plugs for magneto systems and Autolite 303 spark plugs for distributor systems. Yep, I've used Champions and AC's over the years, but the Autolite runs better by far.

Hey Terry,

You would be best off following the advice of these fellas who have given you names of plugs and their numbers and gaps as opposed to the fella who suggested that you refer to the OPERATORS MANUAL for your info. You see the way I look at it would be that if you had the OPERATORS MANUAL at hand, you probably would never have asked the question in the first place.

Good Luck buddy.

The Autolite AN7 number is not used any more. The current Autolite # is 295 which is a non resistor type plug. AC 45's are no longer available. You have to get R45 which is a resistor type plug. A few years ago, the AC plugs started being made in Mexico and I don't feel last as long any more. The Autolites are USA made. The Champions never have worked well for me.

I PREFER CHAMPION J11 PLUGS IF THE TRACTOR SEES ONLY SLIGHT USE. THIS IS A HOTTER PLUG AND WILL BURN CLEANER. BOOK SAYS .035 FOR BE ENGINE AND .032 FOR CE ENGINE.
