I think you should be using a J-19LM (or RJ-19LM) plug. The CJ-8 were used for leaded gas. Doubt that's your problem here, but FWIW....

Remember that a spark plug has a more difficult time firing when it's under compression in the cylinder. If you don't have a spark tester that you can put in-line with the plug, see if it fires better when you reduce the gap on the plug.
