    OK, guys, I need some help with a little Blazer trivia for an magazine article, here are my questions:
    Was the 400 engine offered only in 1975 in a Blazer, I thought that it was offered at least one year but want to make sure?
    Also, what was the ratio of Blazers made to Jimmy's, I was thinking 3 to 1, but could be way off.

    Thanks Guys

    My 79 was too. My Chevy book has the 400 being dumped after the 76 year, IN CARS. I guess truckes kept it for the torque. I think 79 was the last year for it in a truck. I'll tell ya in about 5 minutes when I run out and check my motors manual....

    I have no clue, but I'd say you're pretty close (you can say approximately 3 to 1 /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif) since there aren't many Jimmy's...

    Steve, contact Wes, he has all the 4X4 Power issues and one of the last ones had a history of the Blazer. I'd help you but I have no idea where I left that issue.
