Bruce,Accel makes a short plug.I assume your aluminum heads use the 3/4 reach gasketed style plug,they have two different heat ranges but i have not figured out how they relate to other manufactures heat ranges.

Them accel shorty plugs are nice!!! a little pricey but definitely the shortest plug. NGK's are shorter than say champion or AC delco.

^^^That was me guys!! The NGK's are way shorter than stock plugs. I'm pretty sure they're just as short as the accel POS plugs and should last much longer.
