Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Aug 1, 2001.

    Its all good,I traded her for a bone stock 75 with 73000 orig miles on it.And the ac still blows cold R12 air! She's a little rusty but nothing a little cuting and welding cant fix.I cant wait to get started!! Its like haveing a new child,I hated to see the guy drive off in the good old 82 though.I'm going to miss it.
    Untill I take the full top off the 75!!!LOL

    Isn't it wierd to most people how we trade a newer vehicle for somethign older. My family just doesnt get how I even traded my 85Sierra Classic(2wd) for the 84 Custom Delux K-5 that didnt even have factory a/c as an option. I only jumped back a year but in your case thats 7 years back. I Love it...I probably would trade mine for a 75 too!! just a thought but i think its cool that you got your hands on a new baby

    I was bummed. Had to put the hard top back on my 75 over the weekend. Need it all weather for a while. It's been off since May. My $15 Bikini gave it up.
    Hmmmmm Maybe I need to buy a A/C clutch and find the electrical problem with my A/C. It has Freon [​IMG]
    On a side note...man they made some long lasting A/C back in the 70's. Lady Reapers 79 blows pretty good. need to top it off but I have enver added any freon to that thing in the 4 years we have owned it.
    I flipped out when I checked to see if there was freon in the 75. It has a charge but there is a electrical problem somewhere I need to figure out.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    I've got a leaky evaporator. Rene sent me the evaportator off his truck he bought so I can fix that. I had to disconnect the a/c system when the new motor went in, so I need new seals and accumilator and charge her up and I'll bet I'll be like a rich folk! [​IMG]

    I've got a mind like a . . . a . . . what's that thing called?

    I hope it treats you good. Donna does NOT think I am crazy for wanting a full convert though. I told her if I get one I would give her my 89.

    I bought my 73 a week and a half ago. It has air and is in original condition(rust under doors and behind front wheel wells) a paid a grand for it and drove it 45 minutes home and have been driving it to work since. I bought a front clip off of a 86 for a hundred bucks(I figured it was cheaper than buying fenders alone for the old front end).

    My girlfriend hates it, she doesnt understand why Im always smiling when I drive it. She couldnt figure out why I sold my 92 for a 73. She wanted me to get a Z-71....IFS? Whats that? As in "What IF it doesnt engage" If anyone is interested in my old hood we may be able to work something out after I swap in the new front end. Hood is in really good shape.

    73 K5, 350, auto w/factory air....How sweet it is.
