Default "Short Spark Plugs" = need make/model please

I know we usually use the regular size NGK spark plugs on our zenoahs but I believe they make a shortened version. I'm trying to squeeze an RCMK S520 in a boat and need the extra clearance. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks

Thanks Randy. I'll be able to get on the dock again starting tomorrow so I may just ask the guys on there.

I'm guessing it is in his personal stash? I don't see them listed on his website.

Thanks for the reply. I hope you aren't freezing up there yet!

Ya maybe Joe's stash .......... I know Arrow Shark makes them but I would be hesitant to run them in any of mine... Maybe you can try some Alex and let me know ..........

Not freezing yet ........ but not many leaves left

I've had crappy summer - never really got to play so maybe fall will be better
