Well, it would appear that the 'ol blazer motor has given up the ghost . I was pulling down the road to get in my driveway, and i started to hear a knock...made it into the drive and up to the garage....and that, it would appear, is all she wrote! I suppose this was not exactly a suprise, she has been smoking and loosing oil like the exxon valdez, when i bought it i knew this sad day would come. The good news is now this makes way for a well built , well thought out motor...this not only benefits me, but also my fellow ck5'ers. Once i start this, i plan on going back to the original automatic, which would make a (forgive me, i don't know the actual names) 4 speed with granny gear tranny available, and also the full time 4-wheel x-fer case (205?). I personally don't care for either of these pieces, but i thought somebody may want them, so...keep it in mind, like i said, i don't care for them but one man's junk, is another man's treasure!
