Exclamation transmission removal

I am 150 miles fromm home trying to get my S10 back on the road. The question I have is, how is the best way to remove the five-speed transmission? The problem I have is removing the shifter. Is it better to unscrew the shifter from the top of the transmission, leaving an open hole until you get it out, or what? I need help ASAP. Thanks All.

Re: transmission removal

the shifter handle just unscrews then you can drop it through the hole itll come right out after you drop the crossmember and unbolt it

i dont know what year your truck is, but i put a new tranny in my 89 balzer. i didnt need to pull the bell housing and tranny as a unit. If i remember right, i pulled the shifter off first, then transfer case, tranny crossmember, tranny, and then bell housing and clutch crap. that is the simplified version. also, the driveshafts need to come off. I had a hell of a time doing all this with only a little 1 1/2 ton jack. but no, they dont need to come off as a unit. Chris---

Re: transmission removal

I am working on a sdhort wheel based s10 pickup with 5 speed and 4-wheel drive also. the exhaust goes under the bell housing, and I was looking for the best way to do this. I really appreciate your help, as I am in Norfolk, Va right now trying to bet this baby back on the road.

Re: transmission removal

well i guess if you need to just take it off in 2 pieces, then the bellhousing will clear the exhaust, im used to my auto trans just 1 piece and its a big bitch without a lift lol

Re: transmission removal

you need to remove the whole shifter unit from the extension housing. if you don't you will not have clearance to slide the tranny back to clear the input shaft. You can reove the tranny by leaving the belhousing in place. they are 2 pieces. what do you need to do?
