    how many of you out there have blazer/jimmy with floor shift indicator plate with hi / lo , and so on mounted underneath the boot hold down/trim ring ? according to pics i have seen the same thing is on the shifter knob (i think). i either dont have one or it is missing. if i am suppost to have one, does anyone know where i can get one or does someone have one they want to unload ? let me know, thanks. p. s. i think it must be something peciular to 70's era of blazer.

    The Lady's 79 has it on the shift knob and plain on the boot and my 75 has it on the boot and a plain shift knob. 79 also has a light in the speedo that goes on when your in LOC.

    It varied a bit on all the trucks, although not sure why. I've got the plate that is bolted down for my 205, as well as the knob that has the shift pattern too, although apparently, typically, if not always, it was just one or the other. The 203 setups I have seen that I remember, all had a nob that had like a top down view of the drivetrain, and then the shift pattern on a bolt down plate.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    I cant seem to find it let me see if its still in my dads shop if I can find it and I'll let you know. If you still want it its yours.
