    We're about to pick up this 81 Blazer from as a lien sale . The body looks really straight except for the sunroof and roof around it (dented). There are a lot of new parts on the 305 but it doesn't turn over. I'm thinking the engine is seized up

    I'm expecting to do a lot of searches here to figure this thing figured out.

    I don't know much about the square body blazers, is there anything I should be looking for on it?

    Thanks in advance. IMG_20181109_150039.jpg

    Doesn’t turn over with the starter ?
    Make sure the starter is working
    Check that the relay is getting power from the ignition switch
    Checkthat the main power wire to the starter is good and has good connections

    If that is all good
    Remove it and bench test it with some jumper cables

    doesn’t turn over with the belts loose or removed (a locked alternator , ps pump or water pump will keep an engine from turning over )



    Remove the spark plugs and belts and try a socket on the crankshaft
