NGK list the single overhead cam motor in the F250 series listing and this would be the same 3V engine as yours

Ford will have them. At about $30 a pop.
I should be able to find the part number if you still need it.

as far as i know the 3v's run a different type of plug. they also require a special tool to remove and replace.

I know when we were looking, i couldn't even get a mate who worked for Repco, to get them in for us, as they weren't listed.

The ones i got for Dad's 3V are Motorcraft ones.
Part no: SP - 421
PZT2F

Thats all thats on the packet.

Got told by NGK Technical that motorcraft have a patnet(sp?) on the spark plugs used in the BOSS motors and will not be making a aftermarket on in the forseeable future.

Im in the spare parts game ad was chassing these for a customer not long ago.

Yeah they're around the $30 mark each. I think it may have just been under, but they're still expensive.
But at least they don't need to be changed for about another 70-80,000kms.

I honestly cant see what the drama is. It is exactly the same motor as the F250 3V 5.4 which is clearly listed as a TR6 NGK whick converts to an IT20 Denso iridium or T20EPR-U denso standard.
Easy way to make sure if you ring NGK (02 9712 7100) and ask to speak to one of the tech guys re a spark plug application they are really helpful and knowledgable.
