    Picked up a 700R4

    I scored a 700R4 today at a local yard. I went yesterday for TBI fuel lines and found the 1990 1500 with the drive lines out of the way and transfer case already dropped. I’m swapping a TH350/203 to the 700R4/203. I’ll go through the 203 when I drop it. The 700R4’s fluid is bright with no...

    torque converter lockup in any gear

    Can someone explain to me the advantages of wiring a torque converter that can be locked in any gear? Specifically, I just bought a truck that has the 700r4 wired so that it will lockup in any gear with the flip of a switch. Other than being able to stall the truck just by stopping, why would...

    Transmission cooler?

    Hey guys, any suggestions on what type/brand/model of transmission cooler would you recommend? I’m currently running the stick radiator cooler, but I wanted to get an external one to better keep my TH400 cool. Fan/no fan? Finned? Aluminum? I would like to keep it affordable, but quality is...

    Engine swap in my '85 Blazer

    I have an 85 K5 Blazer with a 305 4bbl Q-jet and a 700r4 k case 4x4, all mechanical hookups. I picked up a 350 tbi with most parts to make it work off a 95 Blazer, however a lot of the research I have done makes it seem I wont be able to use the ECM with the 700r4? Is there an adapter I can use...

    Wes's Burb build/update/maintance

    So after converting my 77 sub, sbc, q jet carb, np205, 4.10, 33, to use a 700r4, the truck ran horrible up any grade in 3 and 4th. I pulled the carb off and ran spray carb cleaner and compressed air through all passages, new gaskets, etc. Recheck/set adjustments. Truck ran pretty good for @ 200...

    Too Nice to Tear Up

    I bought this 1978 K5 Blazer, in July, 2006, from the wife of the second owner, after he died. I was looking for a Blazer to cut up, and turn into a "rock crawler", so a K5 for $500, seemed like a good start. I went to her house, and out of the garage came a really nice, not rust free, but...

    4l80E to 700r4 help (99 burb)

    I have a 99 k2500 suburban with a 454/4l80e/246c. I am sick of replacing the transfer case. It's a crappy job on a good day with where I'm working. I happen to have a built 700r4 with a ford pattern (driver side drop) 205. Mechanically, I have no issues with the swap. It's a daily driver and my...

    I figured I'd hop on here and make a build thread for my current project like so many of you guys have. I think after attending my first blazer bash my inspiration and desire to dig back into my truck was renewed. This is my 1978 GMC JIMMY that has gained the nickname Nightmare due to it...

    Offroad 1979 K10 SWB "Jolly Green Giant"

    I call my truck "The Price Is Right" for a couple of reasons. First off, I traded a friend's father for it. I fixed his wife's Pontiac, he gave me this truck. The second reason is because I am sourcing as much of this build as possible from either junkyards or classifieds or parts trucks, etc. I...
