That is called an ENGINE NOT A MOTOR...Not as long as it is situated front to rear and not fender to fender (sideways Engine) it is a lot easier to do it with the engine removed, but UNLESS I was going to do some work. on the engine it would be redundant..

Removal & Installation To Remove:
Transmission mounting on 2.2L engines do i have to pull the motor out of a 1997 chevy - 88457g33.gif

Transmission mounting on 4.3L engines 88457g34.gif

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Drain the transmission fluid.
  4. Remove the driveshaft from the transmission (2WD) and transfer case, if equipped (4WD or AWD).
  5. Support the transmission with a suitable transmission jack.
  6. Remove the shift cable from the transmission control lever and bracket.
  7. Remove the nut and washer securing the transmission mount to the crossmember.
  8. Remove the bolts and washers securing the mount to the transmission.
  9. Disconnect the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold(s).
  10. If equipped, remove the bolts securing the converter pan cover to the transmission.
  11. Remove the 3 bolts securing the torque converter to the flywheel.
  12. Remove the bolt, clip, and strap securing the three fuel lines and transmission vent hose to the transmission case.
  13. Remove the bolts and nut securing the transmission to the engine.
  14. Remove the oil filler tube and seal from the transmission.
  15. Disconnect the transmission cooler lines from the transmission. Plug the lines and the ports in the transmission.
  16. Unplug the wiring harness connectors from the transmission.
  17. Inspect for any other wiring, brackets etc. which may interfere with the removal of the transmission.
  18. Since the transmission acts as a rear engine mount, properly support the rear of the engine with an underbody support of other suitable support before attempting to remove the transmission. Otherwise the rear of the engine may pitch downward and components on the rear of the engine and on the firewall may be damaged.
  19. Remove the transmission from the engine by pulling the transmission rearward to disengage it from the locator dowel pins on the back of the block. Carefully lower the transmission from the vehicle. Use care that the torque converter does not fall out of the front of the transmission

What do I need to install a 2007 LS Chevy 5.3 L in a 1997 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup

You need the bolt hole alignment from the transmission to see if it will work. Certain transmissions only align with certain motors. Next is you'll probably need to transfer all the electronics, a 2007 engine control computer is most likely highly advanced compared to the 1997 computer. Then there's the questions of will the transmission shift correctly to match the engine RPMs.

Removal procedure of oil pan for a 1997 chevy

To remove the engine oil pan either the engine has to be lifted all the way off of the motor mounts and the oil pan should just clear the flex-plate and transmission, or the front axle dropped down out of the way, or the transmission and flex-plate will have to be removed.

Usually if the engine can be lifted enough to fit a piece of 2x4 wood between the motor mounts and the frame then the oil pan will usually just have enough clearance to be removed from the rear and the oil pan should just clear the transmission and the flex-plate. Also, be sure to check that the fan blade does not damage the fan shroud when lifting the engine.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.
