What is the best spark plug to use for my 1987 CHEVY R10 silverado it has a 5.7 350 with 80,000 miles on it

Ask your parts person for OE, original equipment. These plugs were made for your engine size and year. I don't recommend anything but OE.

My 1987 Chevy r10 cranks but wont start. i was driving and it just shut off like you switched the key off. i have no spark and injectors don't energize as well.

It is most likely the ignition module,have it tested,if it test good,replace the pick up coil in the distributor,this pulses the injectors.

Truck has 305 motor fuel injected idles fine when in drive barely exelerating it spits and sputers and sometimes dies but when i get into the exelerator a litle bit it doesnt do it

if it is an HEI distributor remove the cap and rotor there is a module under the rotor take out the two quarter inch screws and unplug it take it to your local parts store and have it checked that is the module that controls the injection rate,if it is not HEI then do an injector cleaning,also try running a tank full of high octane gas through it the injectors sound like they have gunk built up in them,hope this gives you a place to start
