you can go with a Autolite 295 or NGK B6S or Champion J8C. RJ8C is a resistor plug. The QL77J4C was designed for the CDI ignition system and had a longer reach on the plug thats where the shiny spot on the piston is coming from. I run the NGK plugs in my older stuff and dont have problems with them.

Think we just answered an identical question to this a while ago.
The J8C is too hot for that engine. It calls for a J4C as the primary plug for it.
Usually that means you can substitute a J6C unless you do a bunch of WOT running.
The engine was designed around Champion plugs and the Champion plugs seem to do the best job in these engines.
