Cinder Block walls replace with metal post


When I stripped down the basement I found three cinder block post/walls. I was wondering if I could tear them down and replace them with jack-posts. There is already a metal pose supporting the floor but i don't know if i need the rest.

The main support beam rests on the cinder blocks and post. The basement is 43 feet long and the blocks and post are approximately placed equally apart. The main beam runs into the exterior walls.

I do not know which of the posts are load bearing or not

Your going to have to hire a real engineer for this one to come on site to check it out.
It would be nuts to suggest asking someone on any web site to guess on this one.
