A few weeks ago I also experienced these bad printing results (on A4) for
my old plain TeX documents, prepared long ago in Textures, when I typeset
them now in TeXShop using pdftex. I was shocked and confused, but my
way around is now to typeset them using tex instead of pdftex,
for instance by putting on the first line of the plain TeX document
%!TEX TS-program =  tex
Then everything is typeset and printed fine for me (for the price of
an intermediate dvi file).
