    My '83 came with 350/700r/208 and 10 bolts, sounds like a sweet deal.

    Mine came with a 305/70r4/np208/3.08 10 bolts . The 83 I am picking up Sunday with no motor or axles came originally 350/sm465 4 speed manual/np208/10 bolts .

    This is the last year for the windshield wipers on the dash , later dash bezels won't fit . Most of the other interior interchanges .

    I love the 83's . /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    BTW it is also the first year that NO 2wd Blazers were offered at all /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    most came with 305 700r4 and 208, but there are oddballs out there
    can see anythign from a th350 to a 700r4 or a 3 speed manual side loader saginaw column shift or 4 speed manual top loader and a 2540 ci through a 400
    400 last in 80
    350 not avaialble most of the 80s years,
    250 always avaialable and i am unsure if 292 was only in pickups and bigger or in k5 too, i have yet to see a 292 in a k5, or atleast ehar of such, but it migt be lkisted in the gm specification books for the k5 in 80s years ill have to look sometime, i forgot,.
    axle ratios anywhere from 2.73 to 4.10


    good luck
