If you remove the motor mounts, it gives you enough clearance. if you have a hoist to use, it is easier to lower the trans and remove the two bolts

Need to change the flywheel and what is the best way to get to the top 2 trans bolts? 1995 blazer 4x4 vortec v6

if you dont have a long extension and swivel sockets. the easiest was is from the top side down. sometimes removing the distributor will help gain access. there will be smaller nuts holding brackets on the bell studs you will need to remove first.

Need to pull engine, 4.3, on 97 chevy blazer 4x4 but 3 trany to engine bolts are not accessible. is it standard practice to pull trans at same time?

what you can do is to remove the motor mounts
and that may let the motor lay down more to get to the top bolts on the trans
I dont think that you can pull the trans and transfer case with it

Do I pull trans with engine to do engine change out

well pulling motor and tranny would make it easier in respect to fighting with the tranny bolts but in order to get the tranny and motor out one shot you need a good 2 to 3 feet clearness of the ground and will need to take the radiator and support out to get it out.

tranny bolts aren't that bad except for the top one and if the tranny mount is removed and the tranny hanging down you can get at it with a long extension.

i do it that way because i have a lift and air tools. not sure what you have and what your capable of but it will depend on you situation what is the best way!

if i was doing it on the ground i may take it all out one shot!

good luck man. please ask any more question you have

How to remove a starter on a 1996 s10 4.3 4x4

well most of the time you only have to deal with 2 or 3 very long bolts. look for the starter on the back right (passenger) side of the engine. (for rear wheel drive trucks)it will be a big and heavy(so be carfully) cilinder shape object that is right againts the engine and fly wheel. to remove locate and remove all wires(make note of were they are) and then remove the bolts one buy one. with the last one you may need to hold up the start and undo the last bolts buy hand(after useing a wrench for the first part) it sohuld simply fall off the engine. don't drop it. if it dosen't come out so easly it may be held up buy the flay wheel cover. thin sheat of metal held in place buy 5-7 small screws. easy to uninstall and reinstall

Wanting to know how difficult it is to swap 4.3 out in my 1995 chevy s10 blazer, like tranny bolt removal and anything that might be of difficulty that may require specially tools. its also a 4x4

Changing an engine in any car is a difficult task. Changing an engine in a 4.3 vortec 4wd is probably one of the most difficult trucks to do. In order to get the pan out, you have to remove the axle's in so you can get the front diff out of the way so you dont smash the pan on either the new and the old engine. You have to take off front driveshaft and the starter on the passanger side is nearly impossiable to get too. Good luck!

Oil pump

If it's a 2wd model, remove the engine mount bolts and raise engine enough so you can put a 4x4 between the engine and frame mounts. Remove the oil pan and unbolt the oil pump and drop right out. If it's 4wd, you'll have to remove the engine and basically do the same thing.
