    I put the platinum plugs in and it seems to run fine, I'm not sure
    what numbers they are but I can check tonight and let you know.

    I need to replace the spark plugs in my Amphi.

    Does anyone have the numbers handy of plugs
    they have used in their car(s).

    They are Champion L87YC but be very careful !

    Ask for plugs for a 1962 1147cc Triumph, watch you do not get plugs for a 1300
    and don't quote the Amphicar engine number as Triumph parts books wrongly list
    all engine numbers starting GK as 1300.

    The plugs for the 1300 engine are slightly longer - problem is this results in
    the spark being in the wrong place which can quickly result in a hole in the
    top of the piston - non trivial !

    PS. Whenever buying parts from Triumph specialists remember that all of the
    Triumph engines in Amphicars were made in 1962 - regardless of the year the
    Amphicar was registered.
