Motorcraft.




If anything other than motorcraft, get Autolite Double Platinums. Your part # is APP5144.


Don't forget to gap them.

The only Ranger motor to get NGKs is the Duratech 2.3. In that case, NGK Irridiums are a direct factory replacement. For all other motors in the Ranger, Motorcraft Platinums, or Autolite Double Platinums.

Autolite XP Iridums or Double Plat is the only answer to this ?
