    Hey bud there is a new diesel post here now so that should help. There are quite a few notable individuals that have experience and knowledge of the ole oil burner, for you spark plug fans that's nick name for diesel-ha! Also a very good site is the diesel page, although they now charge for knowledge! From what I know and that ain't much all Blazers came with the 135 hp diesel the heavier 3/4 ton and 1 ton diesels came with 160hp due to gvw rating. Not sure on the rpm but it aint much Blazers never had tacs don't ask me why. I want to say around 3400 rpm-don't quote me. 700R4 was an orignial equipment electronic 4speed. Early years were said to be unreliable but by 89 they finally got it right. Any 700R4 can be rebuilt with all the updates and actually built pretty stout with bigger servos and additional friction material to tighten em up a little. Biggest enemy was constant "soft" shifting between gears and heat. Can be re- built for a measily $1200 if done right, and not to be attempted by the amatures. Good luck. Todd
