80s k5, Bringing Veronica back to life.

Overview

Well, its been far too long since i brought her from Iowa, back to California.

And after having to drag it with my other k10 into a freshly ripped vineyard field during the fires we had in northern california recently, it kicked my butt in gear to finally get a engine.

So, i finally came across a 8.1l somewhat local to me, so i went and pulled it.

So now im just going through the 8.1l since i wasnt able to hear it run, odo said 265k, but after pulling the valve covers, intake, and pan its been extremely clean.
No gunk at all.

Before this, upto now all i had done to the blazer since buying it from Curt was buy the trans/tcases he had in it that i didnt get initially, and put them in. Beyond that nothings changed since he finished it(except of course no cadi engine)
So for now the plan is to just get it moving under its own power again.
