    Can somebody tell me what I\'ve got?

    My Blazer still has a pretty much stock drivetrain and I was just wondering if someone could tell me what some of the options my truck has are. I'm most interested in knowing what gears it has but also anything else anyone can tell me. It is a 1990 and the glove box tag looks something like this:

    AD5 AJ1 AK9 AM7 AQ9 AU3 AXP A31 BB5 BC3 BY1 B30
    B33 B85 B96 CMD C5M C60 D48 F60 GQ1 GU2 JB5 KC4
    K60 LO5 MD8 MXO NA5 NK3 NY1 NY7 N33 N90 P17 R6N
    TR9 TT4 UM6 UN9 UP8 U73 VE5 VG3 VG5 V22 V73 WDV
    X6Z X88 YD3 YD6 YE9 YF9 YG3 ZFN ZQ2 ZQ3 ZW9 ZY4
    1SE 1SZ 19K 20U 42A 82D 82I 83L

    The last column looks like:
    B32
    K34
    SLM
    XFN
    Z75

    Hopefully you guys will have some idea of what some of these codes are. Thanks in advance.

    Ugh! GU2 is the code for the dreaded 2.73 axle ratio. [​IMG]

    That would be great, thatk30guy! I'd really appreciate it. As for the GU2 code, it seems take off and accellerate alot better than it would with those. I wonder if someone changed them out at some point or something?

    Yep. It's was considered part of an emmision package back then. Lower rpm's at highway speed meant lower emissions.

    Re: Can somebody tell me what I\'ve got?

    Type?? Damn man all I did was go to http:// http://www.thirdgen.org/cgi-bin/rpo/index and edit/paste the results into the BBS. Type, geesh... thats like work man! I think I`m allergic to that crap!!

    I have to give credit though , I was looking for codes for myself and somebody else on the board dropped me that link, so I`m just sharing the wealth [​IMG]

    Re: Can somebody tell me what I\'ve got?

    Oh yeah, they built them! [​IMG] They didnt really know what they were doing either! [​IMG] I have pulled some 2.73 axles out and replaced them for 3.73's and taken the 700R4 out of the same truck for a th350. So, yeah, they make them!

    Re: Can somebody tell me what I\'ve got?

    Now thats one I cant tell you!!! [​IMG] My code book says the exact same thing you just typed there......GQ1 AXLE, STD RATIO. Guess to find out the real ratio, youre gonna have to pop off the cover and count the splines.

    Re: Can somebody tell me what I\'ve got?

    Yeah, I guess that's what I'll have to do. The truck takes off like a shot. It doesn't seem like it would with 2.73's.

    Re: Can somebody tell me what I\'ve got?

    Yes they are. Matter of fact, ever notice on the 84 and older trucks, all the RPO codes are given discriptions of each code and the 85 and newer trucks are just the RPO code alone, with no descriptions of each code!!! The 85 and newer trucks make you look in a code book to find out what they are, whereas the 84 and older ones already show whats in the truck by simply reading the sticker.
