    i have an 84 k5 with a motor in it from an 87 something.
    it was in the blazer when i bought it. it looks like the guy took everything off from the original motor and put it on the 87 , including the distributor , intake, exhaust , and accessories. he also installed an inline fuel pump and regulator . so essentually all he used form the 87 was the motor itself. everything else is 84 stuff. it runs good as far as i am concerned.

    I'll take the TBI if the other guy don't get to it first.

    It might suck if you want to make power but it'll run upside down!!!

    I haven't had time to reply to you on this but I did it to mine and rewired all of it. It's a pain but I can help.
    I've been working on getting ready for Moab so PM me and I'll get back to you when I get back.
