An update: success!

With all the warnings about not stripping the threads, I was extra careful with the crank puller, and got someone to show me how to do one side first, then I did the other myself. Made sure to clean and grease before I put the new cranks on, and it worked great! Thanks everyone.

The new cranks are definitely lighter: aluminum alloy chainrings as well as arms. The old ones had steel chainrings plus a pants guard. I didn't expect the weight difference to be so significant, but I do notice it when I lift up the bike! Amazing.
