    scale of 1-10 the level of pain to remove the tranny while the xfer case is still mounted in the blazer? th350-np203 set-up. has anyone done this before or is this a pipedream? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Considering the weight of a 203, I'd make it a 9 unless you have a tranny jack.

    I did this couple weks ago. I used two floor jacks and a friend. Pretty painless just have to go slow. I did it on dirt and it took a couple hours. Hardest part is reachin the damn bolts.. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I'll give it a 5.

    if its not going back in, use some wood to get the jack up under the setup, take all the bolts out, disconnect all the shifters/linkages, drop the jack and let it fall...but since i figure its going back in, use a couple ratchet straps to hold it to the jack...and take your time..

    HELLO
    unless i am totally crazy ( very possible :-) the way it reads to me
    this guy wants to leave his t case there and only remove the tranny
    {to remove the tranny while the xfer case is still mounted in the blazer? th350-np203 set-up}
    (IF) that is the case PIPE DREAM as we all know in the 350 - 203 set up the out put shaft from the tranny goes directly into the t case so you must remove both at same time OR t case first with or with out adapter then tranny
    i find it easyer 2 do em both at the same time
    and il give it a a 6 if your AT LEAST A 1/2 AZ DECENT MECH.
    if your not then easly a 8 + mabe even a 9
    on a 1 - 10 scale were 10 is the most difficult
    best of luck
