If you want a new plug, try a Champion D21.

Champion 7 com I use, I also like the fact you can strip it down and give it a good clean.

Not sure, the green spark plug company did have them but I notice none are available now.

Have you tried one of the new "push fit" plugs, no more stripped threads or plug spanners....
