Welcome to the forum.

Good luck with the project. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

To help you with your work, download the 96 factory service manual at the following link. It has most everything you need to know. Your 97 shares 99% of info with 96.

Welcome aboard! Good luck with your project. My LT1 developed a knock a couple years ago. When I finally bit the bullet and set up to pull the oil pan to inspect, I crawled under, looked around at the mess I had on my hands, and noticed a spark plug boot sitting against the down pipe of my exhaust manifold. Plugged it back in, knock was gone. Hope your is as simple.
