Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You'll need spark plugs. Stay with the factory correct part number Champion plugs that it calls for, no platinums or other brands. Other plugs can cause misfires. It would also be a good idea to replace the plug wires. These engines are prone to flashover where spark travels down the outside of the porcelain on the plug. This ruins the plug and wire both. This can happen at low mileage, so I like to replace the wires every 30,000 when it's time to replace the plugs. It's a good idea to use some dieletric grease on the inside of the boots when you go back together, this will prevent flashover and help the wires to last longer.
