    OK, i got a question. In the latest 4wp book, on page 64 in the old iron section they have diesel blazers listed. They say they came ONLY w/ the 700-r4, and that none came with manuals. Is this true? DOnt know why im wondering but i know alot of you have th400's. o well thats all

    No They only came with 700, and some fleets special ordered were SM465.
    The th400 you see were Owner swaped.
    ANyway they interchange easily.

    None of the Blazers came with manuals from the factory. I thought you could get the 400 from the factory, but I could be mistaken.

    Except the Military which placed the largest fleet order of blazers, they all came with 6.2/th400's.

    If you do a search, you will find that very limited special orders were made for companies that wanted the diesel with a manual.
    But it was not an option for production.
    Th400 was last an option in a blazer in 80

    Well i could show you mine but im to far away /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. So you'll just have to take my word that all U.S military CUCV's m1008-m1028' came with the th400. The canucks have a version of the CUCV to but i think they all have the 400 as well.

    You're the exception to all rules Rene...you should know that by now. And you got your truck from a completely different factory than the rest of the world.

    As for "normal" options, the K5 and Burb did not come with a 6.2L and manual trans. Only in pickups apparently.

    Rene and the military get their trucks any way they like /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Hey, 'learn something new every day. I didn't know that diesel K5s did'nt have a manual available, guess that explains why I couldn't find one /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gifI think 305's were put on this planet to make 6.2 drivers feel fast /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    kidding of course. I know there's 305's out there that would walk all over me.

    Well my 76 has an SM465 too, and it has a diesel, too bad it's not the 6.2 though.
