You need to get into "THe Zone" and buy the repair book for F*** trucks. LOl Best $13.00 you will spend.

Don't pull the motor. Take out the transmission, front drive shaft and transfer-case. This will take you about 12 hours.

What are the uses of a single pulley?

AnswerA single pulley can change the direction of a pulling line. The direction change may help in pulling the line over a corner or around an obstacle. Or the direction change may allow better use of the available pulling force. Also, the single pulley can relocate the pulling point.For example, suppose we wish to lift a weight some distance into the air. If I am the pulling force, then my first problem is that I cannot lift the weight any higher than I can reach. But if the pulling line is looped over a pulley some distance above my head, relocating the pulling point, I can potentially lift the weight just about up to the pulley's height. And now the pulley has given me another advantage. I can leverage my own weight, pulling down on the line, to lift the weight upward.
