Can't locate AC Delco R-44 plugs

I've been looking all over for these plugs that are what the manual calls for. The R-43's are readily available. Should I just use the 43's and be done with it? What difference should I expect with my engine if any? It's pretty much stock.
Thanks

69 SS, 350/300 h.p., M-20, 12 bolt, matching numbers.

R43's are one step cooler than the 44's but should be fine. Ran them a long time in mine.

43's are fine, run them and forget about it. I run them in my bbc's and my small blocks.

Thanks, I bought the 43's today and installed them. They where the only AC Delco's I could find locally. I'm off to the next item before getting on the road in a couple of days. Can't wait for the first ride of the year!

Re: Can't locate AC Delco R-44 plugs

Go to http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php

Select the "Part Number Search" tab.

Select "AC Delco" for manufacturer and in the part number type "R44*"

It will come up with a whole list of them. R44T's are $1.69 apiece, R44TS's are $1.67. I used to get all my plugs from sparkplugs.com but Rock Auto has better prices. Just got 16 NGK's to do the Durango in a few weeks.

Here is a 5% discount code that you enter in the "How did you hear about us?" section if you order.
