Location of engine coolant drain plugs

Location of engine coolant drain plugs

Postby Maddog [OP] » September 15th 2020, 10:24pm

I noticed several people trying to determine where the antifreeze drain plugs are on the 4.3l engine block. So I threw together a video that will hopefully help the visual oriented readers to find these drain plugs. Hope it’s of some use to people!

7 minutes 15 secs to show where a few plugs are ?

Really, 60 secs top. I was nodddddding right away !
probably nothing to do w/ plugs tho...



Almost as bad as me using 943 pics of dooooooor crap.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... Anyone that condones the actions of the American People during the Storming of the Capitol are as complicit as the Assholes themselves.
But no way does this let the Democrats or the MSM off the Hook.
