For your engine, I don't think you could go wrong with the AC/Delco Rapidfires.

For the Rapdifire (AC/Delco part #10) the gap is .035
For the standard plug (AC/Delco part #R44T) the gap is .045

When do you think a good time to get a manual would be?? Or maybe learn the finer points of searching...?

Just an FYI, Autozone.com has this type of information available for free.

Considering that you really have no clue what motor is in your truck other than it isn't the original motor... You might want to do some homework there. Show some initiative in finding the information yourself and maybe you will get better responses.

i just got the truck a week ago, i go to school full time, work part time, get home, work some more, then if i have time between school work and work, work, i have time for the truck. try saving for college and working on a truck at the same time. its not easy. i searched for k5 sparkplugs and all i found were for 2nd gen trucks. so i figured i would ask. the truck HAD A 6.2L DIESEL, it now has a 350 gas. i always search first before i ask a question. i'd rather know something instead of guessing.
