    Hey guys, this is Pam (Rocko's wife). We have a lifeless computer at home /forums/images/icons/frown.gif so I'm posting this for him since he doesn't have access. He needs to know if the 700r's from a diesel blazer are the same as from a fuel injected? He's been offered one from an '85 fuel injected and just wondering if it will bolt right up to the diesel. And is the torque converter also compatible?

    As far as I've heard... I believe so. I have no expierence with diesels, so don't quote me. You could try posting this in the Diesel forum... those guys should know for sure.

    I thought diesels used the Pontiac bellhousing /forums/images/icons/confused.gif I was always told they would not swap.

    You were told correct, about the *5.7L* diesel, which was an olds motor, which has the BOP pattern
