Hi and Welcome  :)
As for spark plugs, the NSK branded plugs BP6ES are one of the recommended ones.
Fuel depends on your compression ratio, if you have low compression, it should run ok on 91 but will run better with 95 or even better on 98 ron. High compression engines wont run very well at all with 91, but will start easily and run well with 98.

From the engine number, you have a 998 cc engine.

cheers

Hi Quin,
Congratulations on getting yourselves another Moke, was your looking old one starting to get too much trouble? 
Will you be preparing this one through the council depot or are you running this totally independent to the council?
If you have time one afternoon, I’d be interested to come and have look at what you’re doing with this one.

I try to only run 98 octane in my Moke but you will have very different engine, I hope. Talk with whoever is redoing your engine and request hard valve seats, if the is room in your budget.

I will try and send you a message, if we have managed to upgrade your forum profile to that level.

Cheers
Dev

Good to see you doing another one up. I was down there last year and had a chat to one of your drivers when we ran into your existing one in the park. I was thinking at the time that most of these sort of things have faded into history and was pleased to see yours still up and running. Good to see there is a succession plan in place  :D

If you can make do with good second hand parts for some of it (and it's surprising how many parts you can clean up good as new on a Moke) I seem to recall hearing of a certain Tassy Devil right there in Launceston with a hoarding problem who I'm sure could be persuaded to help out for a reasonable price.
