Hello, how hard is it to change a rear freeze plug on a 350 in a 74 blazer??
It's easy...as long as the motor ain't in the truck.
Cm'on guys can I do this by just pulling the tranny??
The firewall will be a pain in your ass. I'm not sayin you can't do it, but I can pull my engine just as fast as I can drop the tranny/ t-case. Thats just my opinion though.
The only time I had to replace freeze plugs was on an old '68 Polara. One was leaking...and I had to pull the motor to get at it. Found out the remaining plugs were almost in as bad a condition so with the engine out of the car I easily removed all the freeze plugs, flushed the block of all the scale and hammered in all new freeze plugs.
It was a one day job. Usually it's never just one bad freeze plug. They're all usually in the same shape.
I am going to trade some work for a 74' blazer motor from 70' it runs good just the issue with the freeze plugs,I'm just hoping Its worth it getting the rig for 1,000 bucks in labor interior is shot but motor seems ok as does the trans,also has brand new 4" rancho lift with shocks no serious rust, any input????
Sounds pretty fair to me. The full convertable is a lot harder to find than the half cab versions...especially if it doesn't have much rust.
.....but I can also pull a 3406B CAT out of a longnose Kenworth in under 8 hours too
Thanks fellas! gotta put my son to bed know.
