    book says to pull the motor. but i have heard if you remove the distributor. and unbolt the motomounts. you will have room to jack up the engine and remove the pan. but i have never tried.

    Yep. Pull the motor. If you decide to pull it all out removing the front sheet metal except the driver fender and inner makes it a ton easier. Not easy, but still easier. Also disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel pump because they're bolted to the trans part way up.

    removing the sheet metal is WAY overkill. i can pull my v8/t56 combo with the front end still on.

    All you have to do to change the oil pump is remove the motormount bolts, unbolt the exhaust, remove the thansmission service cover, remove the distributor cap, remove the fan, ect.. Then jack up the engine in the front, or use a hoist. I'm doing mine right now on my '87 blazer w/2.8l.
    Update:My avalanche was totaled by my ex-gf. My business is in ruins. I now plan on finishing the engine repairs to my Saturn, and sell it. Once I get the bills paid off, I'm going to fix my Blazer.
    History:I bought a 2001 saturn sc2, then a 2005 avanche 1500 2wd, then a '87 S10 blazer 2dr 2wd on 07/24/2010, and on 04/01/2011 a '84 s10 blazer 2dr 2wd V8 drag racer(sort of)

    yup i do have to agree, if i was to do another blazer i would slam another 4x4. being able to have my oil pan off in 5 min is a blessing :D:boink: o and it cost me 3$ for a 5" drop in the front

    PCV valve would pop out of the valve cover before it held pressure in the motor to blow a gasket...as turner stated

    Depends. I can pull the front sheet metal in about 30 minutes, so worth it to me. When I pulled the 2.8 we already had the transmission out using the lift, so popped off the hood and out came the motor in a matter of minutes. On the second gens especially I find it easier to pull the metal since the transmission wiring and the fuel lines are all tied into the transmission. Less fooling around with the angle of the motor and everything to seat it in and I don't have to drop the transmission.
