Engine removal for amatuer mechanic

I was wondering how hard it was to remove the engine for an amateur mechanic. I have a oil leak in the rear main seal and possibly the oil pan and would like to just change out all the gaskets and seals. Have a 88 Jimmy S-15 4.3l, 4x4. An/yone else have one and removed the engine?

Re: Engine removal for amatuer mechanic

First off if you have never done it before i would suggest buying a haynes/chiltons manual. The basics of removing an engine are to drain the radiator and engine, remove everything(label as you remove it), remove the bellhousing bolts, and then the engine mount bolts and pull it out with a cherry picker.
