The plug I have been getting is the BPR6ES and I have found that at many 
different parts companies including my local NAPA as late as last October. 
You can also use the Champion RN9Y but most people will tell you to stick 
with the NGKs. I would keep checking. As far as the fuses are concerned I 
would not mess too much with the stock 35a fuses. They are available 
through Moss and many of the Moss retailers on this list. You will 
(hopefully) get many answers from much better qualified people on the list.
