Trying to find a oil filter for my comfort pro unit. The part number is 96-101-33k the old filter has no numbers on it to cross reference at parts store. Does anyone know what filter it takes?

baldwin filter B7139 replaces carrier number 96-101-33k ( P-96-101-33K)
If you do have a Balwin supplier handy then that number will cross reference to other makes
It is not a special filter as can be seen by going google and typing in---oil filter part number 96-101-33k
there are lots of pages with replacement part numbers and what they fit

Is the cross member under the load

cross members are the chassis members that tie the side frame rails together. There will be one at the front and another at the centre of the chassis and one at the rear . There is a bolt in cross member at the rear of the gear box (rear engine mount). Most modern cars are uni-construction (that is the body is complete and the front section will have a front cross member and the sub-frame rails will be bolted under the body around the front door pillars and onto the fire wall.. IN heavy vehicles there is a front cross member the carries the front engine mount another after the gear box to carry the cabin mounts and then a member every 3-4 feet to the end of the chassis rails . Their only purpose is to tie the chassis rails together.

I need an intake runner module but can't afford $400.00. Anybody know what cars might be interchangable?

Several suggestions. Try when you find correct part number. Also Ebay and Amazon. Salvage yards would be good. is an online National locator service for Salvage parts which has free Request feature and results show many details. Details include Photo, Part grade, Price, Warranty, location. Could easily give you 100 results.

As with parts store and Salvage yards, some have cross-references and some do not look up alternate part numbers. Can tell you that with Ford parts, engineering changes reflect in some part numbers. Typically an "A" is a first issue, B,C,D etc. are later changes and THAT Engineering numbers are not the exact match to a Ford Part number. So you can have different Engineering numbers be the same Part number.

Why? Supplier deviations. There can be modifications to the original design that suits the Supplier due to machinery problems, material costs, or to simplify assembly. Once approved by Ford, the part is assigned a different Engineering number from that point on; yet it is still the correct part for the Ford Part number. Basically the Engineering number is meant to be an internal number and the Part number is external.

So if you get a part with molded numbers that are different, it is often the sticker or soft label which matters.

We do not have any access to this type of parts info, sorry. I suggest you contact the local salvage yard and have them cross reference the parts in question to see what they interchange with.

How do you loosen starter motor to change the fan belt

There is not starter motor located in the fan belt location. you probably refer to the alternator. There are 2 bolts to hold the alternator to the chassis bracket. Loosen both of them, one for pivot and the other for belt adjuster. When you can wigle the alternator then you can take the belt off. Good luck.

Size rubber band gmc jimmy bortec 6 cyl model 1996 motor 4.3

Oh No!!!! theyre using rubber bands as a fuel alternative? Was afraid they would get to that sooner or later!!!
Seriously, even without the numbers, if you are referring to the serpentine drive belt, every parts house has the # in a source book...all you need to tell them is the engine size and power options (steering, a/c etc) and they can give you what you need!!! The belt number varies with manufacturer, so even if you had it, they would need to look it up to cross reference it to whatever brand they sell.
