I believe I have Autolight 86's in the 440...they are a bit hotter than stockers and have seemed to work well so far witht he pertronix and a bigger gap as well.

Accel #134.
Got a set in all of my motors and I can't even remember when I put these in.
They keep working for years without any troubles.

Boys Boys Boys
 
#1 choice, unfortunately is Champion.  They OE'd the Chrysler plug and maybe still do.  There is a distinct difference between them an autolite.  Don't even think of AC.  The mopar engines run the best on the champs.  Even if they do stink otherwise
 
I've run NGK's before. . .  But what do they know about 70's cars.  That's a Jap company started in the mid-80's.  Have a set in the Magnum which seem to be doing OK.  Platnums
 
I learned all this the hard way.

CAN'T GET AUTOLITES???   unbelieveable...
 
I'm with Steve on plug choice.  Champs are OK but I always ran Autolites or Accels in BB Chryslers.  Truthfully, the only engines I've ever had that ran the best with Champs were Briggs and Stratton

I've always asked for the originals - RJN12s - or whatever appears as recommended on the factory sticker or manual.  (Or RYN, whichever is correct.  One is shorter than the other.)  Steve is correct - Champions.  Switching to a higher number - 13 or 14 - makes for a hotter plug.  A lower number is a colder plug.  If you are buring some oil use a hoter plug.  If you are pinging a lot and your timing is correct, use a cooler plug.

   Never put an AC plug in a Mopar, they only seem to work in brand-x models and chain saws. I have never had a good experience with autolites due to the fact I have never, and never will, own a Phord. NGK's are jap plugs for jap motors although Leaburn seems to be having good luck with them, then again his motor is fresh too. Harleys eat Accels for lunch. I have always sworn by the champs in Mopes and Harley-Ferguson's, never let me down yet.

AC's in a 440   What number were they, just curious.  From that plug I'd guess a lean air/fuel mixture and maybe too cool a plug/overheating condition.

DON'T OVERTIGHTEN THEM!!!!!!!!  Once you feel the gasket seat against the head bump the plug 1/8 of a turn.  .0035 is the correct gap.
