McCoy plugs run great in both of those engines. Use a McCoy MC-8, which is a medium plug. Or you can run the MC-59, which is a hot plug. Normally I use hot plugs for break-in and when running in cold conditions. For normal summer running I favor the medium plugs.

McCoys plugs seem to be fine, I know a lot of veteran racers that swear by them. I personally use odonnell plugs. Stay away from the os plugs just because they are a short reach plug and were not intended for either of your motors. Its not that they wont work but they dont screw all the way into the combustion chamber.

MC-8 is what I've been using. Even in the colder weather they work well. Just a few warm up laps and you're golden. Great idle and easy to tune. My .02
