    I recently put a 465 into my 82 blazer replacing the t350, now I get to do it to my friends 84 with a 700r4, is there going to be any problems with the manual clutch setup, Any differances between the two? Just trying to get an idea of what I have got myself into. thanks

    light drilling in the frame or body might need to be done

    I am not to worried. Mine was almost a bolt on mod. It was done in one night and used all the factory mounts, but I thought 84 was when they switched from a manual clutch to a hydrolic, and I wonder if the frame was changed. or if we are going to have to do any mods to the truck that I did not do on mine.

    '85 was the change to hydraulic, so everything should be there for the manual in the '84, except perhaps the x-member holes in the frame, but that shouldn't be a big deal at all.
