It's an easy but physically demanding if you do not have a pneumatic set of tools. The specialty tools you will first have to get your hands on are a Tie Rod remover. otherwise know as a (pickle fork). There are two sizes of these large for ball joint removal and small for Tie rod removal. Looks like a big 2 pronged fork. The next Tool is a Pitman arm remover. Usually you can rent or barrow them from your local auto parts store. Drive your blazer up on to a set of repair ramps. Block the rear tires.The bolt to the center link from the pitman arm has a crown nut on it with a cotter pin going threw it. Remove the cotter pin.and remove the crown nut. Then with the Pickle fork and a 5 lb. sledge hammer. place the pickle fork between the center link and the pitman arm bolt. Give the end of the Pickle fork as many good blows on the other end as it takes for the center link to release from the pitman arm. Once that is done take a break I know you'll need it. Next is the Pitman arm to the steering gear shaft. Hope you can get your hands on a good breaker bar or an impact wrench and a socket large enough for the steering gear shaft nut. Remove the nut. Then place the Pitman arm removal tool between the pitman arm and the steering gear housing. Start tightening the threaded rod the remover up against the shaft. It is hard as hell to remove because pitman arms rarely go bad. It's usually the center link that fails.It will take a lot of strength to remove and you may want to use a little penetrating lube on it. Once you get that off you may want to replace the steering gear shaft seal as well. Otherwise just reverse the removal steps. The shaft is notched and so is the pitman are make sure they line up. then Torque to spec.s If you plan on keeping the blazer get a repair manual from your auto parts store. It will help you put a great deal.

You are probably right in guessing the lock cylinder.
The steering wheel comes off to get to the cylinder, and there are extra steps to handle the air bag.

Mike, what excatly is the question here Are you just wanting to know how to remove the Ac compressor or do you want to run it without the compressor connected to the motor? If your just want to remove it to get it repaired or replaced they simply bolt on to the bracket and you will need to remove the hose connections as well, but that will release your gas in the cooling system and is not a good thing. Once the connections are removed you will need to have it serviced and filled by a qualified tech on ac systems to get it back to working order. Here are the basic instructions for removal.
First you pull off the belt. Then pull off the plug. Then undo the bracket on the back of the compressor that connects to the manifold. Then pull off your freon lines. Watch for the freon to spray out. Undo the top bolts on the compressor first, and then undo the bottom bolts. Sometimes the bottom bolts, have a notch cut out of the washer head, and that's the only way you can pull them out. So look for the notch. Then you should turn the compressor to the right, and pull it up, because it has a lip welded in that doesn't let the compressor pull straight up. Then you repeat the steps in reverse order. You will have to recharge the system after you get it hooked up.

repressure test cylinders ,may have damaged head gasket in reassembly,heads might not be flat [slight warpage] may have damaged cylinder wall ,[water jacket ] block may not be flat ,and check the intake manifold itself and the gaskets for leaks can cause antifreeze to seep into engine
