    I have no experiences of the 6.2 w/700 tranny on long run,only with TH350.How reliable it is with diesel?I know that pre-87 trannys are weak.What improvements I should do to stock tranny?Auxiliary cooler is must,I had one on my K1500 w/305,and that worked great.Would shift kit work fine,or should I consider complite rebuild?

    I'm too lazy to stick shift,that's why I prefer autotranny.

    K5 is a Blazer,K10 is a 1/2-ton pick-up.Also K20 is 3/4-ton pick-up,and K30 1-ton.K-marked are 4wd.If it's C,then it's 2wd.

    Eh?

    The title for my truck says K10, but it's a full size diesel Blazer. The truck has K5 Diesel badges, though...

    And another thing, does the "silverado" make anything different?

    The Silverado was the "luxury" package, meaning it came with carpet, cloth seats, and all the bells and whistles(pw/pl/AC/cruise). A Blazer without the Silverado badge was like a Cheyenne- more of a work truck set-up.

    K5 is simply the model # of the Blazer- they are actually considered a K10(1/2 ton 4x4), although they are more like a heavy-half ton.

    My 82 diesel blazer is a silverado also, but I don't have PW, PL, or cruise, just an a/c

    85 Blazer on an 82 chassis, 6.2L Diesel, ORD flip, 35's with no cutting on a 4" lift.
