    1984 K5 Blazer 350 sbc with stock truck heads, rv cam, stock lifters and rocker arms, stock 350 crank, replaced two-piece rear main seal recently as well as the head gasket, new hei distributor and wires, 4” lift with shackle flip in the rear new shocks and springs in the front, rebuilt and dropped the transfer case an inch to help with the driveline angle, rebuilt 700r4 transmission, installed new exhaust system with long tube headers, 3” pipe to x-pipe to Gibson single chamber(super loud) mufflers. That’s it for now. Gonna update to aluminum heads next as well as install a new floor pan on then driver’s side and inner/outer rocker panels due to rust

    They say there are a million things to do but that is bullshit. It's only about 100,000 things that need to get finished.

    Have you had the 700r4 in from the get go or was it a swap? Reason is I have a 350/350 now, but almost completed a 454/700r4 combo, and wanted to know if the 350 marriage for transfer will bolt up to the 700r4. Love those K5, had a friend who bought one new in 1973, so had some seat time in a new one.

    Hey Craig, I’ve had this tranny from the get go. It wouldn’t shift out of 3rd gear so I took it to a local SoCal transmission shop who rebuilt the trans and transfer case. The 350/700r4 marriage feels like a match made in heaven. I’m learning how to mig weld, can’t wait to get the floor pan and rocker panel done!
