My 85 Blazer

I bought this last year, the weekend after Thanksgiving. I was looking for a 73-90 4wd Chevy to put a plow on that I bought for $200 last summer. It's a 85, 305, 700r4, 3.42 gears, 31x10x15 tires, 150,000 miles. Has the usual rust. Had 4 inch lift blocks in the rear and no lift in the front, so I remove the lift blocks and replaced the U-bolts, rear shocks, front shocks, front brake pads and heater core. Removed the smog pump and every thing related to it. Also removed th a/c compresor so I could mount the pump for the plow there. The plow is a old Meyer full hydraulic. Bought a belt that was 1 1/2 inches longer then the a/c belt and added fluid today and the plow works after sitting for 15 years
