FFR428 has a good reputation on FTE.FFR428 has a good reputation on FTE.
Dorman #P7C.
NAPA part # CEP 2192098
Original Ford # EAA-6572-A

Not sure the NAPA # is still good but maybe?? You'd have to check and the Dorman # should be correct. I'm also not sure if the Ford and aftermaket Sealed Power shafts use the same plugs. For such a simple plug it can be a real pia to find the right ones. Let us know how you make out and what you use. Good info for the future.

I found mine at the local hardware, but any good parts store, NAPA, etc. should have them.
