Gary Goforth says:

Realistically you didn't have to move the engine to top dead center or anything. Alls you needed to do was mark the distributor at the bottom to block an then make a marking by your rotor bug so u know witch way it was facing also.

Chinn Boi says:

We're there any other indicators that the intake gasket was bad? Any smoking from the tailpipe?

Jon Redd says:

Why have to put motor tdc

The Butter Knights says:

Everything about these trucks is so loud

Juancho Man says:

Do you have to move the motor to 0 degrees before removing distributor?

TalesofJeep says:

Wish you had actually showed how you removed the gaskets, keeping the galley and ports free from debris. Pointers on that is the only reason I checked in.

Noah Vail says:

This video just solved my problem thank you !!!!!

Noah Vail says:

My heater hose broke off and I can't get that peice out of my intake. So until I can get it fixed I can't do a thing

Brian Hess says:

What Chevy 5.7 manual did you use?

800624 says:

If you want to keep the heater hose quick disconnect fitting parts stores sell one that is real metal and won't break off.

Iguana Iguana says:

What happens if some coolant falls in to the oil and you use the truck like that

Ashley Foster says:

So what's the pipe on the driver side intake manifold

James Litteken says:

I just did my heater core bolt into intake and the intake but my heater core bolt was so loose it unscrewed from manifold with my hand unbroken ! I was shocked !

Mike McFadden says:

1 Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

9 If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is LORD," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10

We're living in the end times. Jesus will be rapturing his church before the 7 years of Tribulation begins. He will come back after the 7 years. If you miss the rapture don't take the mark of the beast, you can't go to heaven if you do. It will be on your right hand or your head. God bless you.

Landen Wolever says:

I want to tackle this job on my ‘88 350 but that timing is intimidating! How do you set the timing any resources for this? Thanks.

Dennis Carver says:

I might add if you plan on painting intake you can take small punch, chisel and lightly hammer a mark at base of distrubutor to intake before you lossen distributor. Now you can clean, paint intake with out worry of losing magic marker lines. Just enough do not hit with 2lbs. hammer. Work safe diy'ers regards

Aiden Holmes says:

I have to replace the Intake gaskets on my 1998, 350 small block. I really dont want to mess with my distributer. But I might have to. oof

Kontroldatrap says:

I have to change my manifold and head gaskets on my Chevy caprice 305 this video is the first to show how to actually get to it lol thanks for this I could use a few tips tho

Scrotum Monster says:

Did you have to set the timing afterwards? I presume, yes but figured I'd ask. It looks like you have everything marked up perfectly.

Jerry Hubbard says:

just got all the parts to do my 1994 Silverado. Typical Chevrolet. Mine in leaking oil at the rear manifold seal.

Timothy Darby says:

Thank you! Helped a lot

msclecarcrzy says:

Good job!!! I'm not a mechanic but I know the 96-98 gm were different. Vortech motors and I believe they were plastic intakes.
