Anyone know how much horse a 10bolt 1/2 ton with a 700r4 hold up?
it all depends on the application, in a light car it woill hold up to more than a heavy 4x4 w/ big tires. what are you looking to use it for?
It's an 88 4x4 blazer with 33" tires I picked up. Im just wondering about building a 383 stroker from the 350 block and dropping it in there.
I wouldn't be suprised if it held up to 400+ ft lbs stock, but then again there are some that couldn't take a stock 350... Its a toss up with a 700r... some will last and others won't. What year 700r is it?
You will have to take it easy on the 10b's but they should handle it.
Its all stock truck expect for the lift and the body was completely restored. The 700r4 is an 88 or 87 I guess since its an 88 year truck.
what kind of power will the stroker be making?
If it's a gov-lock/G80, that axle assembly probably won't hold up to much at all if you like to get on the gas. (and with a 383, how could you resist?)
Both my 10 bolts lasted quite awhile, forever in my '83 when I sold it, and my '86 held up for about 3 years until I swapped in the injected 355 and I split the carrier.
Open 10 bolt, or perhaps locked or posi would probably hold up much better. The cars that are running 10 seconds on these axles are NOT running gov-locks.
