Having problems with your Chevrolet 1500 ?
How do I take a transmission out of a 1980 chevy truck? Can u take out the motor and transmission and transfer case at one time
All of this is usually removed at once the way I know of to allow more room to remove transmission bolts etc. Start by marking all hoses, lines and electricial connectors. then disconnect. Next find all mechanical connections, in example; connections from transmission to shifter and exhaust. Find suitable connections for engine hoist to lift motor. Keep in mind you will need to balance the transmission, but, it will be much lighter than the motor. Find and loosen motor and transmission mounts. Start lifting motor with engine hoist and remove connections to mounts as needed. When you are doing this be sure to stay out of possible pinching areas where you can be pinched or squashed by shifting weight. If you havent done so, I would remove fan and radiator because they can be easily damaged. From there lift the engine out, most likely it will take a little push and shove. Just be careful and you will get the job done!!!
