removing motor and trans from 98 blazer(4.3)

I found a 98 blazer with a 4.3 and 4L60e that will be going into my 71 commando.

Has anyone pulled the motor/trans out as a combo through the front?

I know the front grill will need to be removed but I am looking for any clearance issues that may come from the oil pan and front differential.


Every post I can find only address pulling the trans or the motor. Not both at once.

You can pull them both still together out the front, take T-case off first though .

You can pull the engine, trans, and t-case together. You'll have to remove the rad and rad wall, or just remove the entire front clip and hood. The key is raising it high enough to clear the frame and diff and you may have to tilt it at an angle. (If the t-case has a slip yoke, pull the yoke and cover the hole with a bag using rubber bands to hold the bag on)

Or if the truck is junk, unbolt the body from the frame and get a few friends to flip the body off to the side, then you can lift the engine/trans/t-case easy-peasy

Rip the body off and pulling the whole powertrain out as a unit is easy as pie.

So far I've removed radiator and support. I'll pull the fenders just for convenience.


Ill just pull the Tcase so I don't have to worry about it and see if I can angle the trans down to it out of there.

Hope you drained the ATF from the trans and T-case first, or you will have a mess . About a 30/40ish degree angle on the engine/trans combo and up and out .

If the diff gets in your way you can jack the body up away from it a little bit and let the suspension hang for clearance Clarence .

I got the motor and transmission out of this. Before I junk the rest, do I need anything other than:
-Motor(4.3)
-Transmission(4l60e)
-Computer

I will not be using cruise control, so that is staying out.

Are shift cables normally interchangeable? I need to get rid of the blazer so I have room to look at what I now have.

You didn't mention it, but I'm sure you're keeping as much wiring as possible? I have a buddy who pulled an engine out of a Mountaineer to swap into a Bronco, ran into issues with keeping the Anti Theft system happy since he didn't have the gauge cluster of all things - so he had to have the ECU flashed. Just be aware of some anti-theft system f*ckery if you're swapping into a new vehicle.

I am not keeping the wiring harness. I will be using the stand alone harness from Painless.
