Rover lists three different standard plugs for the SD1 
depending on carburetion.  NGK website lists four plugs 
for the 1980 NAS SD1 with different prices for each 
number-BP6ES being the standard plug.  Champion lists 
RL87YC as the standard plug for NAS SD1's.  Early Rover 
plugs are 1/2 inch (12.5mm) reach and late heads are 3/4 
(19mm) reach.  Hope that helps.
