    I am thinking of converting my 88 Blazer with a 700R4/205 combo to a manual transmission and would like your opinions on which transmission to use and why. I have an opportunity to buy a NV4500 or a NP465 either of which I will be connecting to a ORD Doubler. Please let me know.

    man, i want to do the same (and will), but would really wish some one would do a write up on this...there is no doubt that i cant do it, but it would be nice to know all the particulars before i got started...my 700r4 is getting a little" long in the tooth" so i kinda need to start preparing.....anybody done this and have it documented?????

    AIRBORNE!!

    <font color=green> Hey K5BLT4FUN, will you sell your 700 when you convert it over to a manual tranny?
    let me know cause i need a backup setup and if its in good condition, we'll talk bout $$$

    <font color=orange> if you cant beat 'em, drive over 'em </font color=orange>

    I did convert my '87 K5 from 700/205 to a 4500/205 (about 5 years ago).

    Glad I did it. I have
    posted some photos and a list of the parts I used at: http://www.geocities.com/tneg50/
    hope this helps.
