    I finally picked up my 1st blazer. '79 Cheyenne fully loaded, power everything, runs like a top. I am super excited about my new toy. Be ready for the questions... I am sure there will be many /forums/images/icons/grin.gif .

    Welcome to the club! I have a 79 Cheyenne also. If you have any questions you can PM me.

    IMO that's the best looking front of all Blazer years. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    It has been years since I have had a vehicle that needed some wrenchin on, so this should be interesting.
    It has a new 350 in it, maybe 3500 miles on it.

    Here are a couple of questions...
    1. There is a 10 bolt up front and a 12 in back, is this stock?
    2. I can't find the rpo code for the gearing... nothing in the glove box and can't read the one on the door jam. If I jack up the rear and spin a tire, will the ratio be however many times the driveshaft spins to one rev of a tire?
    3. I need a new rear yoke on the tcase (np203). The stock motor was a 400. Any idea on a spline count?

    I have more questions but they can wait.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    welcome.....yes that will give you an idea to what the gears are. You do know that owning a Blazer puts you in a hire class....LOL it's like a drug addiction, very expensive and you never get enough!

    To find gear ratio, you will have to either spin both tires at the same time (easiest for locker/LSD) or keep one tire on the ground and divide the number of revolutions of the tire in the air by 2 (easiest for open diff).

    There's gonna be a metal tag on the front diff, that has the gear ratio stamped in it on one of the cover bolts. To know what diffs you have go to the technical section on this website and there is an axle identification page.
