    Anybody know where the crank is in your 2nd gen truck or blazer in relation to the frame? I mean to say is the centerline of the crank higher or lower or centered in the frame up and down ways on the back of the motor.

    Mine is sloped 10* downward towards the rear axle.

    Now that I think of it, that my not be accurate because I measured on an uphill slope. I'll throw the angle finder on the valve covers in a few minutes. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You would think as much as we work on our trucks we would know that off the top of our heads but I can't picture it.

    I figured it was about 4.25" or so from the bottom of the frame rail to crank center. Just in case anbody else was wondering. Needed to know for the Caddy swap.
