first take the fan clutch off by loosening the four nuts on the fan. Remove the fan pulley. You should be able to loosen the power steering pump bracket enough to get the right hand side of the pump out. Once the p.s. bracket is wiggled out of the way, it's four bolts and off she comes.

Just the short block, about 300lbs.

Short answer, remove the heads and replace the head gaskets. If you want to know exactly how to do this, then purchase an Hayne's or Chilton's repair manual for your car.

Nothing at all. A long block is the complete engine. A short block is just the engine with no intake, exhaust, or accessories installed.

engines are either long or short block. it depends on your motor size, but you wont have to replace that. it depends on the amount of damage. but either way. put oil in your truck! it should run out unless there is a leak! A short block is the engine block with crank, pistons, and rods. The long block is a short block with heads, cam, etc. It depends on the situation, but it would be worth a try to put in fresh oil and filter and try to run the engine. Stranger things have happened. If you do have to replace the engine, you might be able to get away with just a short block. Assuming your old heads and cam are in good condition.
