Somebody out in the PNW might find this interesting. Body looks pretty decent.

That's a real nice truck, hard to find these days too.

I completely believe the flywheel story. Same thing happened to me with a new NAPA flywheel in a friend's '86 Firebird. Turns out, it was a listing error and the NAPA flywheel was the incorrect balance for the application year.

With as many of this 82-93 S10s that were made they sure are getting hard to find and when you do they’re mostly beat to crap. It’s wild.

I got a little chuckle out of the 4 spare 2.8L parts engines. I had my old '85 S10 Blazer from 1991 through 1999. I had the same pile of engines in the garage for it and actually got pretty good at swapping one out in a short weekend.
