    The old guy that I purchased the Blazer from had let it sit for a long time and the pan started to rust out. I have lived with it for over a year now but it seams to be leaking more oil lately. So I am going to change the Pan and gasket and also the valve cover gaskets. Just wondering if someone can give me directions on droping the pan. I think I know what I'm doing but just figured it wouldn't hurt to get some advice. Also, where to buy the pan, and what kind of gaskets should I use?

    Well to change the pan it's pretty easy, Just drain the oil and take out all of bolts there should be four 1/2 and the rest of them 7/16. For a gasket the Felpro Gaskets are good to get there is a one piece oil pan gasket that would good to use as well. You should beable to fine this stuff at your local parts store or a Speed shop or you could go to Summit Racing And look around their site Hope this helps some
