My god this thing sucks. To pull the motor I have to remove the starter, to remove the starter I have to.... I don't know how to remove the starter. Its all unbolted, but it can't drop down(tranny cooler lines and differentrial), and it can't slide forward(hits the frame). Trying to remove the motor AND transmission, is pointless. It came forward about 2" and hit the differential with the oilpan so its just not going to budge. The easiest way to work on this thing is going to be to remove the entire front suspension THEN do this crap. Also, this is the only vehicle I've worked on that has a crossmember, between the engine and transmission. It just ties the framerails together(and routes some brake hard line). But it can't be removed while the suspension is installed. It drops down and gets stuck on top of the torsion bars, so they have to come out to remove it Really wish I never got rid of my K5 for this. Puting in and working on the 383 in this damn thing is going to be a nightmare.
