SORRY, Wrong pictures. Didn't look at them before loading them, just went by the numbers on the files.
That was the BILs Ford that ate both heads, gaskets and block when it got hot.
Will have to take some of the 01 when I get a chance.
Not that it makes a difference to the OP.
Sorry again.

Why even spend that much, a 14mm bolt is 78 cents at Fastenal.

Which brand of $14 plug do you have a vested interest in?
Original poster: as long as the physical dimensions and heat range of the plug are the same, there's no practical difference between them other than making sure you're getting a resistor plug. The cheapest resistor plug from AC Delco or Champion will work perfectly.
And a 20 14mm bolt would work just as well as his 78 one.

Which catalytic converter manufacturer do -you- have a vested interest in?

Original poster: this is bad advice. Stick to what was installed as original equipment. There is a reason that choice was made to begin with.

Yes it would, and they'd both work as well as your recommendations.

Horse shit. Don't take my word for it. Ask around more places than this. 5W30 dino oil was what was installed originally too. There's a reason that choice was made as well. It has nothing to do with being the "right" oil either.

Scratch one from the list of folks I'll accept advice from.

That's redundant.

Like where, the dry cleaners?

Actually, thats exactly why it was chosen.
Feel free to avail us with any conspiracy theories you might harbor.

How's the weather there in Dogpatch?

No, you're right. You're the absolute final authority. No one should bother checking what someone tells them in Usenet.

Horse shit again, but that's another thread.

Mileage. Period.

Too easy, but thanks.

Of course I am.

Compared to some of your statements, I am Fer instance;

That's a knee slapper.
GM AC Delco does not publish or provide what the heat range is for their 41-XXX series spark plugs, which is what was installed as original equipment in the OPs 2001 Blazer.

What someone told him on usenet has been 'checked', by me.

Actually, it has more to do with oil flow thru the piston ring lands, ring sticking and micro welding of the piston rings to the ring lands.
But I -do- love a good conspiracy theory.

Maybe you should stop taking the easy way and learn some current technology. You seem to be stuck in the 70s there Abner.

No, you're a moron, but in the interest I had in letting the OP know he should verify anything found here, I was trying to be at least somewhat diplomatic. You're just a complete, self absorbed halfwit.

Right and not one of the other plug manufacturers has any clue whatsoever what the heat range is for that plug. It's a bigger secret than who your father is.
That particular plug was used in the following applications: (and is available for less than $6.00 with very little effort involved in finding it)

Who the fuck are you?

Actually, no it doesn't. But rather than wasting pixels pointing out the obvious to you, or assuming for a millisecond that anyone is reading this or actually gives a shit, I'll just let you wallow in whatever it is you're wallowing in.

Becuase I won't buy $15 spark plugs from your bumfuck parts shop? Nice try.

Damn this shit is dumb. You can buy the $12 plugs from Advance for $6.59 each. You can buy the Autolite Double Platinum equivalent for $3.99 and they are every bit as good as the AC plugs. The shop charges $12 for them so they' be there next week. No garage can survive on competitive labor charges only.
