4.3 Vortec Engine Removal




What do you think about this video?

rag Doll: Hi there. Thanks for the video.. I have some questions though! :0
I need to remove a 4.3 v6 chevy engine and 700r4 tranny from a 88 blazer with the cherry picker/engine hoist. I plan on installing both in my 1976 cj7 jeep. I already have the motor mounts for the swap and will keep my dana 20 t-case (will have to get an adapter). ALSO, do I need to put the t-case and/or the transmission in neutral? Or does this not matter?
Since I plan on reinstalling the two together, what differently would I do? I know to drain and remove radiator. I hope to remove the front of the blazer grille. Is this difficult to do? Thanks again for the video. It helps me get a better idea on how its done. :)

Tater Trefz: the easy way to get to the sencer's on the back side of the motor is to remove the motor mounts and lower the motor it will be so easy'er  to unhook the them ,fuel line is  a 16 mm rench

Barnekkid: Isn't the oil pan connected to the bell housing in some way?  I'm planning a similar job on my Blazer next year.

Relundus Washington: is there any waythat I can remove it without having to take distributor aloose????

Mickey Flowers: Good video, some other areas to keep in mind. I just removed the engine on my '99 and I did a lot of the same things you have here. The top driver side transmission bolt was completely inaccessible from the top or the wheel area to start with. I had to drop the tranny to get to it. I've seen comments that this is not necessary but, I used every method I could think of and no luck. The bolt that held the fuel lines to the back of the driver head was impossible to access until I moved the engine forward a little and then I had to use an open wrench from the wheel to get to it. I have no idea on what I'm going to do to get these 2 bolts back in when I do the install. Keep you posted.

michael black: how did u get the top bolts on the tranny

IAMDAVEAMI: oi
the best way to get theses enignes out is to take out the heads then it will give yu alot more room to work with and to take it out easier and alot more room for clearneces and stuff
so then to put it back is take the heads off then put the block in then replaces the head gaskets  and intake gaskets then you know there good and dont have to fo them later on
might as well if your putting in a used engine then you know nothing is bad haha
thats the easiest way i think think of
take the block out it self after taking out the whole top end parts
i am looking for some heads are those heads good on that blowen engine
if you still have them can i have them or how much you want for them
THE END
:p

jon soma: how do you get to the  two bolts on top of the transmission without taking the whole engine apart

Jimmy Cody: I left both manifolds on and oil cooler set up 

DailyWalk365: Thanks for taking the time to make this video. I'm gearing up to remove one from my '96 S10.

shane taylor: I never got any codes, but I sold the vehicle not sure about now

MARK CASTORENA: How did you fix the crank bearing same thing just happened to mine

fivesforfun: shane did you have to do a case relearn on this after you was finished? i did this same swap but im getting a p0300 multiple cylinder misfire code.

86mcss drifter: I'm pulling a 4.3 out of my blazer right now and i was wondering how the hell to get to those torque conv bolts... I didnt even think to look throught the starter hole... So now i feel dumb lol

paulsjunkcars: I have to do this on my 1994 GMC Jimmy 4x4 here soon. Nice to see it can be done with a few tips and tricks. Thanks for posting.

RagingWhiteman: Can you go more into detail on the top bolts please? Also, the left side top bolt above the exhaust manifold. Cannot get a wrench or socket on it. Little clearance. Anything out help.

David Athey: how do you get to the tranny bolts on the top?

glenn ploucher: im so happy this helped me life savior vid

Ronald Ehrlich: Thanks man I am in the middle of pulling my 4.3 and ran into the issue with the same small things hangin me up. Your video showed me exactly what was holdin me up.

Rebel97Yell: Thanks for the video, I am about to pull my 4.3 from a 04 silverado that's totaled, and put it in an 06 that has a very high mileage motor in it.
