    I have an 83 diesel blazer 6.2l with a 700-r4 tranny. Are the frame-side engine brackets the same for a 350 gas motor?? How about the bolt pattern on a 89 350 block? will it work???

    It's a direct bolt-on.

    I think I misunderstood your question...are you saying that you're installing a gasoline engine in place of the diesel? Please say it ain't so! That's just wrong!!! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Just messing with ya...it's just so sad to see another diesel bite the dust.

    I agree with Casey but hey to each his own.
    The block has the same bolt pattern as any chevy.
    The motor mounts however I think are big block mounts so you might need to get the small block version.
    If I am wrong someone will chime in.

    Motor mounts are the same for 6.2L/6.5L diesel and small block gasser.

    Not sure why one would put a sb gasser in place of a diesel. In stock form my DIESEL has more Pickup than my older truck with a gasser.

    why are you putting a gasser into it? The diesel has more torque, better towing abilities and most important with my wallet BETTER MILEAGE.
