Question about Champion Garden
RCJ6Y is a colder plug and might be susceptible to fouling in an engine that has a RCJ8Y recommended. The Y suffix denotes an extended nose which also tends to resist fouling and is claimed to provide a better, more positive start to the flame front. In reality there is little practical difference between the standard and extended nose plug and the performance they offer in an engine in good condition and correctly tuned.

Only use spark plugs recommended for the unit. Mixing or changing spark plugs is not recommend as it can cause overheating and melt the piston crown. The numbers and letters all mean something. The 'Y' if I remember correctly is extended reach, and if you put that in an engine not made for them, you will damage the crown as the flame is ignited closer to the piston crown. I did this on a Yamaha YDS3, it was an employee that suggested I used a long reach Champion plug. When the boss heard about it, I got a new piston, rings and a plug for free with his apologies.
Take the plug the manufacturer recommends and then look for equivalents in NGK or Iridium.

The gap for a similar Homelite is .025". I didn't find your exact model. I think you have the 26cc engine. Here is a user manual from similar models. Spark plug information is on page 16.

Hi, yes you can use either one. The one in it is a resistor plug which is what the "r" is. It basically reduces electrical interference with radio,s tv,s etc. Hope this helps,regards Phil.
