    How difficult is it to swap a deisel to 350 in an '82 blazer? Found what i think might be a good deal, but I don't want a deisel. What all is involved in making that kind of switch?

    Prolly need to find a gas blazer in the first place if you want an "economy" swap. Unless you had all the parts to convert to gas already, and your time was worthless, you'd be pretty hard pressed to make a diesel/gas swap worthwhile, over just buying a gas truck in the first place. (especially a "legal" conversion, if you live in an emissions control area)

    Besides, why not just buy the diesel and run it till it dies, meanwhile accruing parts for a later day swap?
