-- Pull the distributor. When you replace the intake manifold, be sure you seal up the ends as they are prone to leak there. You have to drop the manifold straight down. If you slide it into position the end seals will slide with it. Not that bad of a job. How long it takes depends on how hard you go at it.

From what I've gathered over the last month or so,, that maybe where my problems is to begin with. I've gotten water in my oil from time to time,,, i have a massive oil leak coming from somewhere I cant pinpoint it, the entire top half of the engine is dry, but when I drove to michigan this summer the bottom of the truck was covered with oil, it took 4 quarts to get there and back. And now I've got this water/antifreeze pouring out the bottom of the bell housing :((
Sure wish someone had a good used rebuilt, beefed up, tanked, shaved, ported, cammed, balanced, custom, chromed 351 I could just throw into it and forget about it.
... Did I mention that I only have about $100 to spend :)
Oh well, it's supposed to get warm this weekend, maybe I'll start tearing stuff apart and see how it goes.
Thx

if you have water/antifreeze pouring out of the bell housing I would look at freeze out plugs. if you have a bad head gasket, you will most likely have water in the oil, or oil in the water. very rarely will a head gasket on a 302 blow in a way to let fluids pour out of the motor.

There's at least 1 freeze plug up behind the flywheel. I'd look there first. The downside is you have to pull the tranny, bellhousing, and flywheel to even see it. If it's leaking, you might as well change them all. While you have the heads off the ones on the sides of the block will be easy to get to, plus the ones on the ends of the heads.
