Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

I did find out for sure (according to GM's LS1 swap kit guide) that they are 1/4"-20 threaded inserts for the linkage bracket.

Thanks man! Getting closer. The only thing a lack is time" Self Employed" But after this weather strait'en up around here, I should get more done! All i've done this winter is collect parts!

I just yanked the chassis harness out and the dash out. Routing the new harness now, and wiring my Gauges and building my dash cluster. Just need to get my ass in gear!

Justin!

Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

Weather here strait it self out, I might get some work done! But I did start wiring the chassis and dash this week. The Game Sunday kinda slowed progress! Go Saints! Took a bet with bunch of friends. I won $300 bones! Put that into the slush S-10 fund!

Dropped off my trans for a rebuild this morning. Getting a little closer.

Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

Hey, thats looking pretty good. I've been building a 91 s10 ext cab 4x4 for my son, and he wants to put a 350 into. I'm not sure how well that will go, not sure if we'd have to change drivetrain or not. I like the looks of the 5.3L in there.

Thumbs up Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

The rest of the Gauges came today!

Building the Aluminum Panel tonight and adding extra panel mounts to stock bezel. Should look great!

Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

That turned out nice. Does your blazer have the brushed trim? I didn't think it looked bad on the wood.

Thanks. No bushed trim. Just the gauge panel. Nothing special, just something to hold the Gauges.

Bob They worked great sir! Thanks again!

The Lokar bracket is on, just had to drill the housing out a little. Tapped in with a brass hammer and good to go!


Finished putting the front clip back on. Painted the core support and mounted my radiator and getting my Dual fan shroud worked out.

Weather is has been touch and go here, had 3" snow Saturday. Today its 60* now! Crazy!

Working out my Cold air intake, have to cut and TIG weld it back together.


The laundry list is getting shorter.

Wish I wasn't self employed at times.
Hard on free time!

Just lost my Fiance of 3yrs, Guess she didn't Like the life either!

Work hard, and sometimes I guess forget to stop and smell the Rose's!

Post Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

It happens, better to find out now than later ( No KIDS) but still bad never the less.

Thats cool you have a complete donor truck, that will help alot with the swap.

Finished the front clip this week. Ready to wire everything! If my plans don't change over the weekend, should have a buddy there to help with the harness! Thats if I have enough beer there!

3200 stall. 9.5" Nitrous Bullet hub, Converter.
I have had all these parts, but didn't have the time to do anything! Business first then play I guess!

Thankful that I have the Lift. Made it easy installing the trans by yourself.

Plumbing is next and odds and ends.

Post Re: The 5.3 Blazer build

More parts installed. Bought me a 8.8 Ford rear, disc brakes, 4.10's limited slip. Heck for $100 bones, I couldn't pass it up! Might sell my 9" now, Need to order the rims with the correct offset!

Rolled the truck out my shop for the 1st time in over a year! Cool seeing it the Sun light again! But I hate the stance, too high! Need to get some drop spindles and figure out how I'm going to drop the rear end.
