Don't worry ... Lots of things on these list baffle me. I just happened to
figure this one out by myself.

could do is remove the engine mount bolts and use a floor jack on the
bell housing to get enough clearance to slide the pan out the front.
The problem so far is that every time i raise any part of the motor the
whole truck goes with it.

Your engine weighs around 600/700 #'s so the vehicle is going to raise some. I
would venture to guess in the neighborhood of 6", (but that is just a guess)
before you see seperation between the engine mounts and the engine stanchions.
Recheck to see if you got all the bolts out of the engine mounts and try her
again. If you can lift the front tires off the ground, then you are obviously
still attached to the frame somewhere.

Well the trans problem is fixed. Phil, you nailed it
by suggesting to check the easy stuff first (which I
was too lazy to do). It ended up being that the
vaccuum line connected to the modulator was just a
little too long, causing it to kink. I cut off about
a half an inch so it straightened itself out and it
works great now.

Thanks a lot,
