    Does anyone out there know a good mechanic in Denver for my 70 blazer? I need some gaskets replaced to stop some oil leaks and do not have the time.
    Thanks in advance,
    Tom.

    pickup the gaskets and come on out. If you can't get the gaskets I can. That should only take a couple of hours. You buy the beer........ If you want the oil pan done you should do the rear main seal and timing cover seals as well.

    To change the oil pan gasket on my '72 K/5 I had to unbolt the motor mounts, jack up and support the engine, and unbolt&amp; remove the engine crossmember to get the oil pan out. Quite a hassle.
    My 2 cents

    I just dd mine. I had actually pulled the motor and put in all new gaskets along with degrease and give her a nice new coat of orange paint along with some clear coat to keep it neat. Probably the best time to do all of that and like they said. Do the REAR MAIN and look at the flywheel and clutch. Just my two pennies

    I agree, the whole engine should be pulled and all new gaskets put in for as cheap as gaskets are. It is easy to do and doesn't take but a few hours to pull it, tear it down and put in new stuff and have it wheelin' again.
