Re: 1984 K-5 Blazer "The Monster Truck"

The motor is built on the stand... Now I just need to do a flush on the tranny (been sittin outside), bolt everything together, and drop it into the blazer. I have the front clip removed, so i think i can stab the motor/trans/transfer all together at once. I have a question, I have a set of headers that are for a 2wd, will they work on this thing? itll just be running open headers if they will fit.

More pics whenever i find my damn camera. lol

Re: 1984 K-5 Blazer "The Monster Truck"

I know what you mean. Im sick of the unlimited budget builds. Anyone can throw ungodly amounts of cash at a truck being built by a shop and make it into somethin cool. I really respect those that work on a limited budget and do all the work themselves... The little guys usually.

Re: 1984 K-5 Blazer "The Monster Truck"

well heres pics as promised, all in all the installation went smoothly so far. I have the crossmember all bolted up and in the correct drop position, along with my headers put on. I also started to run the wiring and thats where i quit today.

Funniest thing that happened, I was using a master lock as a chain link while installing the motor, and, long story short it bumped the firewall and broke the key off inside the lock, so then i had to cut it off with a torch!

Motor mocked up on stand. I like my free headers!




its gettin there...



i think the body cleaned up nicely...


Soooo close...


And there it is! That little 355 really likes its new home!


Tomorow I will finish bottoning up the motor, add gas, oil, and tranny fluid, and give it a go!

Re: 1984 K-5 Blazer "The Monster Truck"

It lives! I got it fired up the other night, played with the timing, and got it running pretty smoothly. it sounds great, like a monster truck (straight headers) lol now i just need to get u joints and rig the brakes up well enough for a testdrive around the pasture!

Re: 1984 K-5 Blazer "The Monster Truck"

well there hasnt been much progress here because honestly, the k5 has been cast aside because of the tranny, and lack of funds and motivation to fix it. Its gonna be around 450 bucks for my tranny to be built. anyone have one they wanna give me? that would be nice...

Re: 1984 K-5 Blazer "The Monster Truck"

How hard would an sm465 swap be? And what are the differences between the 2wd version and 4wd?
