How to replace engine in 1996 Chevy G30 van?

To remove/replace the engine on a mid-90's G series van, you must remove everything in front of the engine, from grill to radiator, and remove it from the front. You may need to remove the motor mount to crossmember bolts to allow the engine to move forward. It is best to keep the transmission bolted to the engine, as it will be easier to align, etc when you are ready to reinstall it. Keep in mind all the lines and wires will need to be disconnected, too. Get a Chilton bok and use it for reference.
