IT\'S ALIVE!!! Can you believe it! It actually runs and drives, has 3 forward gears and 1 reverse! Thats the most its had since I got it! LOL! Ive taken it to about 70, so far. Thats enuff for me. I cant get over how smooth it rides. The 38 Swampers have lived up to their rep as being smooth. Esp. considering I have let the Blazer sit in 1 place for months at a time, on asphault. I did not get the gears done yet tho. Soon I hope. The tranny shifts hard enuff to rattle the fillings in your teeth. When I got there to pick up the tranny, I had a new case and all the internals. The only thing that is off of the old one is the pan,Vac. modulator, and the Valve body that has been modified. He threw in a shift kit too. All he said was it was a high dollar kit. I didnt ask any questions! I just smiled and said thanx. He had the conversion shaft laying around that he forgot about for the 700 to 350 swap, to replace the twisted one that was in mine. I still have a few bugs to work out,but I am happy as can be to have it running. I get all the exercise I need pushing my luck!
