    Well i took a breather from all the body work ive been doing and did some wrenchin today, being I bought the blaze as a project and got a good deal on it i never really looked over it to much when i bought it... so first things first, hack off the 2" exhaust (ouch) so thats off, when i was hacking that off I realized no cat converter, and that the tranny is nice and shiny so that i am thinking is newer, then i went to put the headers on it, after taking off the smog pump/A.I.R. system, I decieded to look at the casting number on the block and look it up online, well I found out i have a crate 350 instead of the stock 305!!! No idea when the motor or tranny were replaced, but can't be that long ago, it only has 72 - 73k on it.. Well just had to tell someone that the old blazer is like a mystry box

    You GOTTA love that! Congratulations!
    You might want to count the bolts on the front diff,
    I recently have heard there are some 12 bolts out there![​IMG][​IMG]LOL!!! (an 11 isn't as good, but a 13 would be stronger[​IMG])

    I didn't believe it at first either...but if you go to the technical page on this site and read about the 12 bolt it says they came in front and rear. Still Skeptic but I guess it's true.

    I knew there wasn't any 12 bolt front diff's. I was just poking fun at a similar post to this one that was on here yesterday, called
    "I thought my axles were 10 bolts, but today!"
    I was just trying to be funny[​IMG] maybe I was misunderstood?
