    I'm looking at buying it and was wondering the approximate value of it. It is a fully stock blazer, I'm not sure of the year, but I think it's a 84-86? It has considerable paint flaked off and is black underneath it?? Doesn't look rusty where paint flaked off, and has a decent amount of surface rust on it. Would this Hydro SM-465 be worth quite a bit by itself?

    Looking here:
    http://coloradok5.com/specs.shtml#1984

    The only 4-speed manuals in those years were SM465s. (if still original)
    In addition, the shift pattern matches a 465 and the shifter arm looks just like the one on my 465. The indications are good that it is a 465.

    However, we all know that to be completely safe you'll need to look at the actual tranny to be 100% sure.

    As far as value, on the truck we'll need to know a lot more about it (pics?) to even guess. (The truck is worth whatever someone will pay for it)......

    In general, I think you'll find that outside of the hardcore circle the manual tranny probably lowers the value of the truck to the average buyer (if you're thinking about resale). This can also be a good negotiating tool if they think you are "settling" for the manual. :rolleyes:

    Tranny value (with hydro) I'd guess that you're only talking a few hundred bucks or so, tops.

    couldn't see the picture, but if it has 2 pto covers one on each side then it's a sm465.

    465 style shifter and 208 style tcase shifter. nice for later on if doing doubler setup. tranny will have 32 spline shaft already.

    (Without looking at pics) Whole 465/hydraulic setup for $100 is a decent deal, better for $50. Gotta assume the only good hydraulic pieces are going to be the pedals and the bellhousing/fork, as the master/slave cylinder can fail at any time, especially trying to re-use old ones.

    465's are dime a dozen, but the newer ones have less wear and tear, (likely tighter/smoother shifting, relatively) and the 32 spline ones are a fair bit more uncommon, so compared to an older 10 spline one, the 32 spline is worth more IMO.

    yup definately SM465.

    I'd pay more for a stick! 80s Blazers with sticks are hard to come by. You shouldn't separate the two.

    But if you are then a full hydro setup, and SM465 with a 32 spline is desireable to anyone who wants to swap in a stick into their Blazer.
