    Hello!
    Just wanted to say hi and thanks for all the info. I've been browsing the posts for the past few months trying to learn about the 77 Jimmy (my first 4x4) I purchased a few months back. I've learned a ton of stuff already but I have a long way to go for sure (check out my bio and you'll see). Anyway, thanks in advance for all your help -- I will certainly need it! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    There are quite a few very knowledgable members in the 'Hot'lanta area...Grim Reaper; moderator here, and an NP203 and Q-jet guru among other things. Depdog is also in the area as well as Keith and a few others I'm forgetting. You have a lot of good wheeling nearby too. Tellico for one.../forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Yep, th400 and np203 were stock. Luckily, the guy I bought it from had the original RPO codes for the vehicle. In reality, I guess I got lucky on the purchase b/c it was only after I bought it and started to research everything using this site, that I realized what I should have been looking for. My main concerns when looking for a Jimmy or Blazer was a rebuilt engine and rebuilt tranny. I figured if those two pieces were OK then I'd have won half the battle. Little did I know! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Thanks to all for the nice welcome!

    Hey All.
    Sorry to all for flooding this string w/ my replies -- am still getting my feet wet. Is there a way to reply to all?

    beater74,
    I live in the Roswell/Alpharetta area. Looking forward to some rides. Thanks for the invite but I'll have to pass /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I'm changing diff fluids and spark plugs this weekend -- see exactly was or what was not done by the prior owner to maintain the vehicle. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    zakk,
    Yea, after browsing this site for about 3 months, I had seen enough posts and requests by members for people to fill out their profile that I knew that was the first thing I better do! Seeing as how I need a bunch of help, I figured I better provide everyone w/ as much info as possible! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Welcome! And also thanks for spending some time finding out what good info is already on the site instead of just signing up and posting the first stupid question that came to mind.

    mike reeh,
    I made a mistake! /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif Eventhough the original RPO codes I have for the vehicles say 1M40 (which according to Chuckschevytruckpages is th400), I crawled under the vehicle tonight, looked at the shape of the transmission pan, and determined that I have a th350 (again, using chucks). I have changed my bio accordingly. I wrote down the numbers on the tranny that were close to the front of the tranny pan and want to look those up tomorrow (if that is possible). Anyway, sorry for misleading everyone! I guess when the seller said the tranny was rebuilt a couple of years ago he meant that a new tranny was put in. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    The seller most likely got a new or different T-case at the same time then. The TH400 version NP203 has a 32 spline input where the TH350 vesion is a 27 spline unit. They could concievably have swapped input gears...but likely picked up a Tranny/T case as a matched set.

    Maybe the glove box door is not right for the vehicle. Check the vin on the build sheet and compair the VIN to the one on the dash.
    TH400 was pretty rare in a K5. Usually only 3/4 tone or better trucks got that tranny The only one that might have got it was a Chalet or a Casa Grande That had the sb 400 engine. Your build sheet doesn't say "camper "or "Casa Grande" on it does it?
    The code for a TH350 is 1MX1
