Assuming your cylinder head is unmodified and still accepts 10mm plugs, then Autolite 3136 available at most any auto parts store should be entirely satisfactory.

Apologies for jumping in. Probably cadmiun plated steel, certainly not aluminum.

I have had very good service with AC Delco M8 plugs.

https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/a ... lco-spark-plug/m8/2492758

The M designation is meant for marine application and has the period correct black oxide finish - not bright cadmium. Price is fair too - less than $3 each. YMMV.
