Turbo 350 removal?

I've my engine out of my '76 K-5 Blazer and would like to have the tranny rebuilt (gettin pretty tired) as long as it's clear of the engine. My question is whether or not I can pull the tranny free from the transfer case while the case is still bolted to the vehicle or do I need to drop them both at the same time. I would rather not have to attempt to balance both the tranny and t-case down if I can avoid it, ya know?!! If they can be separated while in the vehicle, what do I need to do? This is my first time removing a T-350 from a 4WD vehicle. Thanks for any input!!

It would be much easier to drop both tranny and case IMO.

Re: Turbo 350 removal?

it is impossible to do what you want to do. The mount that holds the tranny and transfer case in is bolted to the end of the trannk first so to do that you have to un bolt the transfer and then un bolt the tranny and the transfer will fall out and if you are worryed about balance take them out seprate I do it all the time by my self. Because everyone else needs help and I help but when I need help everyone else is gone so I have learned to do it my self so it is do able. If you have anymore questions let me know
