What is the Coolant capacity of my 4.3?

This weekend I'm gonna be installing a OEM Block Heater, and while I'm at it I'm going to replace my thermostat, and convert my cooling back to the green stuff. So I plan to flush out my cooling system first, but was curious if anyone knew the full capacity of coolant used in a 4.3 engine? Any feedback or responses would be greatly appreciated!
