Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

I tried to figure out a starter issue (I think I need a shim kit) and I started the swap to my new Boss 338 wheels.

Well... officially it starts. Just sounds like grinding metal on the starter when it does. Anybody have thoughts on a remedy?

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

It was last Friday not today , I drove to work and stopped at the local Friday night cruise-in on my way home. I always get there late . They start at 5 and I get out of work around 6:45 . Sometimes they are leaving as soon as I get there.

Iíve done the same for mine already as well. I blew the half ton axles twice and finally had to upgrade.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

I finally started cuttin out rust today. The more I remove, the more I find! Can someone tell why the Torsion boxes are named that way and what they do? One of mine is missing and the other has a lot of rust.

Pete, glad to see this theead is going so well. First place I go.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

The torsion boxes help keep the body aligned when the truck starts getting twisted up off roading. Without them you would not have good door openings as the body would basically start crushing itself in the middle. The tortion boxes and the rockers is what keeps the center of the truck stable.

Hence the name torsion box. Duh. Thank you.

So I just started this floor/rocker rebuild. Another thread said to get everything else done and do the boxes last. Dont I need to have them at the same time I do my rockers?
