    New here and just wanted to say \"HI\"

    I live in Independence, MO. I got a 88 K5 Blazer with one jacked up tranny in it. I put a post up about switching to a 350 turbo in a different forum. If you guys could check it out and let me know if you have any ideas.

    Thanks

    Welcome to our little corner of the world. I am located in Peculiar, MO. I am a member of the Kansas City 4 Wheel Drive Assoc. KC4WDA If you are interested in joining a local club? As for the conversion from a 700R4 to a TH350 it is relatively simple. A&Reds Transmission in down town KC has a kit if you plan on keeping the NP208 transfer case. It comes with a new dipstick tube, kickdown cable, dust cover, spacer and instructions detailing what TH350 you need. Or of course you can do a search on here, it has been discussed at great length.

    Welcome I'm in Olathe KS. and also a member of KC4wda if you need parts (used) for the k5 send me an e-mail/PM I can get most anything and rather cheap too. Also my buddy just rolled his 90 k5 it has a good 700r4 tranny in it I think he wants 300$ for it would make replacing your alot easier. Ryan

    Ask your friend if he's still selling it and if so I will buy it from him.

    He contacted you on your post here, he is wakeboard&4x4er on here. I just called him and told him you wanted it so you can pm him your # and work out the details.

    Thanks, I sent him PM. Hopefully I can have my ride up and running within the next couple of weeks.


    I took my blazer to Cottman transmission to have them put a parking pin in and adjst the TV cable. Well when I got it back I had to put it in 2nd gear just to get it to move, the tranny slips extremely bad and they didnt even touch the TV cable. I will never again take any of my vehicles to that place. They wanted $1100 to rebuild it.
