    Yesterday i went to check a for sale Blazer 6.2 D silverado for a friend.
    It was a surprise when i saw it only had 3 speed auto tranny,no OD /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.
    The truck appears to be in original shape.
    I though all the 6.2 Blazers (except M1009) came with the Th700 R4 tranny.

    The truck also had the Banks Turbo on it.Doesn,t pulls nothing from the other world comparing it with mine /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif.
    Regards.

    I'd say you have a good find. I'd take a TH400 over a 700 anyday.

    I don,t know if anybody had changed the tranny sometime.It had the P R N D 2 1 shift indicator too.
    This Truck didn,t rans good.It takes a lot of RPM for pass from first to second gear,and hits when changes the gear. Neither makes "kick down" when you step on the accelerator pedal pad.

    Mine runs great comparing it with this other.It always goes at very low RPMs,and never hits when makes the gears changes.

    After to check the Silverado, i invited to my friend to check my truck for comparing it with the other.We haven,t run one mile and he was saying that it was like comparing the water with the wine.
