Where is knock sensor on 2001 silverado 4.3

I would highly recommend investing in a Haynes Manual if your truck is that old. It is threaded into the engine block near where the transmission is bolted below the oil sending unit. You have to remove the distributor and the oil sending unit to get to it. MARK THE ***DISTRIBUTOR AND THE ENGINE BLOCK*** WITH A MARKER OR WHITE OUT SO YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO ALIGN THE DISTRIBUTOR WHEN IT GOES BACK IN!!!
