Spark plugs

Hi there,
It's probably a stupid question but still want to ask. Do plugs for atomic 4 need to be any specific type? I just installed the ones that fit the size. I have an electronic ignition installed by the previous owner.

Champion RJ12-C or equivalent is recommended. A .040 gap with the electronic ign.

And it is important. A couple years ago I blew out all 4 basically brand-new spark plugs that I thought were correct (They had "J12" in the name but also an additional letter) and stranded myself on Ocracoke. Isn't a bad place to be stranded, but.
