This is a big complex problem, probably not suited for the small space here. However,

Get a Chilton's book on your year and model. That will have a step by step section to do this.

In general,

Put car up on very sturdy stand or lift. Always have a friend don't do alone. It's got to be high enough to allow the transmission to slide out underneath

On bolt both ends of drive shaft - differential end and transmission end.

Remove Drive shaft set aside.

Use some 4 X 4 and 2 X 4's and block up the engine at the rear.

You will need a transmission hoist - can rent these

Take off speed cable
Take off shifting cable and level mechanisms

Loosen all the transmission bolts from under the hood facing forward on the bell housing.

Put transmssion hoist under transmission and lift slightly.

Undo rest of bolts.

Move tranmission back about three inches

Lower stand

Slide out.


Be very careful - heavy things here, and dont' forget to get the repair book first.

This is only about $1200 fix at a transmission shop - that may be better.

I have a 1985 chevy g20 sportvan the tranny is slipping i need a new one it has a tubo 350 in it and i need to know how to tell if it is short or long


What your looking for is the length of the rear tail shaft housing on the transmission. You want to measure the length of the one on your vans transmission. You will need to get under your van and measure from where the drive shaft slides into the back of the transmission to one of the 4 bolts a the front of that housing.
