    Depends on year of blazer which transmission. A 700r4 from jegs or summit will run around 1500.

    Can't tell you today, but I can tomorrow evening. A 700R4/4L60 and a 4L60E have a square trans pan a T350 has a squere pan with a notch cut out of one side. What is wrong with this one? -leaks, cracked, slipps, hard shift- where is it cracked and a guess as to why, the more info the better. I'll hit up the trans guy at work and see what he says (after I buy lunch- J/K)

    I've found several local <portland, or> area tranny rebuilders for 350s for under $400. I have a rebuild that cost me $300 from a local mechanic who does them in his home garage and advertises in the local community classifieds and its held up well for over a year now and I think he did a decent job on it. You will get a better rate if you pull the tranny yourself and take it in rather than having the shop do it. I don't know about the prices on 700's.
    Good luck,
    -Aaron

  6. AAMCO just installed a rebuilt 700R4 in my 1988 Suburban 4x4 and it ran $1500 for tranny and install with a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty. Wasn't even a high performance tranny !! Check out <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.700R4.com>http://www.700R4.com</A> for a well-built tranny at a good price.

    If it's a four speed with overdrive....its a 700R.....probably not what you have. You probably have the TH350 or TH400 3 speed auto. These typically cost $600 to have rebuilt.
