Asked by Apr 19, 2017 at 07:33 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet S-10 Tahoe Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

looking for any specific information to this job... i know to label everything,
plus i have a video camera to set up to record everything coming apart, to
make putting it back together easier. What i need to know is whether i will
need any specialty tools, and how long i should set aside for this job.
I am assuming it wll be about 10-12 hrs, 2 day job 1 pull apart and 1 to put
back together. Thanks for any and all advice

What motor do you have?


Basically you need a whole mess of torque specs, you may want to pick up a repair manual for those, just to make sure you have a complete guide. For now I have some PDFs that will give you a guide on removing and installing the heads, intake and exhaust manifolds. Copy and paste the links below: 1) https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7qtH3Vy2sdBbm1yQl9kVi1yaDg 2) https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7qtH3Vy2sdBX2RVOXRWclp5RDA 3) https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7qtH3Vy2sdBS2pTV3NSSXVNMFU 4) https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7qtH3Vy2sdBTzFYeWNGTjZJR28 these are for S-10, from 1.9 to 4.3 motors.
