Well hell I figured I am going this far with it I'll make a build thread to try and help anyone doing a 700R-4 208 to a 465 205 swap. The 700-R4 crapped out on the Slampig so it was time to beef her up. The Slampig as she is affectionately know is a '83 Blazer, 350, soon to be 465 205, 12bolt rear, Dana 44 front, 6in" lift, 35in" mudders. First off please excuse my horrible spelling, and now that I have made it a build thread I will post more picks than the 2 I have at the time. This is my first crack at this and I am sure I have done things in a different order than the pros on this site might have, but just hope I help some one. I will eventually have pics as well. First of I recomend that anyone doing a swap have a good solid set of tools, full rachet sets, full combonation wrench sets, especially metric. Those sizes that most kist come with come in handy if your set is properly equiped. To be dead honest my best friend so far has been a large can of P.B . Blaster. Its like WD-40 on steriods. I started by pulling my whole interior out, carpet and all. Only suprise was the seat belts are held in with torx head bolts. I then removed my tranny hump, which started by disconecting the shift level for the 208, which didnt give me any trouble. Also I recomend have a variaty or wrench sizes to pull the funny cotter pins you will run into. I then unbolted the transmition hump <a href="http://img252.imageshack.us/my.php?image=trannyswap1oa4.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/67/trannyswap1oa4.th.jpg" border="0" alt="Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us" /></a> and found out why my transmition blew, <a href="http://img180.imageshack.us/my.php?image=trannyswap2hi3.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/6807/trannyswap2hi3.th.jpg" border="0" alt="Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us" /></a> And then in my out of order way of doing things and that fact that I work on it from day to day after work, I dropped the drive shafts out of it. Cake walk as long as you have the right size. I am repeating myself but have the right tools makes a job easy. While under the truck I also discconected the speedo cable and shift linkage to the 700-R4. got back in the truck and disconnected everything that was attacted. If your worrying about making a mess, this is a time when you will make a mess, so get your kitty litter out. One pain I had was disconecting what I believe is refered to as the kickdown cable. It ran from the carb to the tranny and was a bit of a pain, but with a little help from my wife, we were able to get it out, fishing through the engine bay. Yet again out of order I unbolted my exhaust from the manifolds, whiched looked like it was gonna be inpossible, but after a P.B. Blaster soaking, was able to get it out. Thats enough for a start, will continued after I have more pics Alright I have my 700-R4 out and putting the bell housing in and tranny clutch etc. isnt a problem. My problem is this is my first auto to manual swap, and I have no idea wear to run the linkages from the clutch through the firewall and to the bellhousing. Its a manual clutch set up, I have all the linkages, the part the blots to the frame somewear but I just dont see a factory punch or hole that it all goes through. Looked though other swap threads and in my books but couldnt find what I am looking for. No one has really had this problem I guess. Lost and aint afraid to ask for help. Pictures would be awesome as well.
