I am pulling hte motor on my 95 blazer, and need to know if there is any
"special" things to look for.
I had read that there is a grounding strap in the back somewhere. Also does
the starter need to be unbolted?
I have a leaking core plug somewhere in the back drivers side.
Also the engine has about 160K on it. Should I do anything to it while it
is out and on a stand? Timing Chain/Gears? Rear Oil Seal? Steering column
If you have it on the stand (and if you have the ability) I'd order a full
refresh kit. A couple of hundred bucks, and your motor will outlast the
rest of the truck. Timing Chain, gears would be great. If your starter has
160K, that might be nice too. The starters are a bear to put in. There are
other things, depending on how much you want to spend, and how frequently
you have maintained the vehicle.
I had a similar "leak" that was dripping down the back of the engine on the
driver's side HOWEVER it turned out to be the lower manifold gasket. It was
leaking up front and channelling it's way to the back Also a 95 S10 4.3l.
change as many seals as you can.
change the timing chain (non- freefloating gears would be a plus)
change all the gaskets you can too. intake,exhaust,throtle body,valve
cover,water pump,rear main is a must...etc.
