I have a 92 S10 Blazer 4.3L Auto and just found out my flywheel is bad and needs replacement. Any tricks or sugestions before I start working on it. I was told that the whole transmission needs to be drop to replace the flywheel. Any help will be appreciate it. Thx
need 10mm 13mm 15mm 18mm sockets
pull pan, drain fluid, replace pan, 10mm i think
pull drive shaft
pull flywheel cover
pull flywheel bolts 18mm i think, 3 of them i think, best done hitting a wrench with a hammer.
pull bellhousing bots 18mm
trans comes down...this if u have 2wd
if 4wd then have to pull front drive shaft as well and transfer case.
that's all that comes to mind right now...Good Luck
edit: when putting new flywheel on use threadsealer on the bolts.

Reason: added thread sealer info
make sure the torque converter is spun all the way on. push it on and spin it till it clicks in a few times. you should barely be able to get your fingers behind it. recently had a guy working on one of his own cars run into this. but he decided to impact the transmission on and cracked off the corner of his engine block.
but really it should jsut slide on the pins in the back of the engine. 2 people always make the job a bit easier
