Due to someone crossing five lanes of traffic in front of me without looking
I need a new 4X4 ride.
A friend told me about a 1981-87 Blazer a fellow worker of his has for sale.
We went and looked at it this afternoon. (I can't get up with the owner
until Monday). All the info I have on it is that it is the '81-'87 body
style, Diesel, 2-door, towing package, auto, power windows, power locks,
fair shape. (It is not an ex-military Blazer). Here in coastal NC I don't go
surf fishing when it gets close to or below freezing, as I have a gas GMC
pickup for a daily driver below, cold weather starting problems with a
diesel are not a concern.
What can you tell me good and bad about the diesel? I have a lot of
experience with Chevy/GMC trucks but never with a diesel. If its too bad
will a small block bolt up to the transmission. I have plenty of small block
gas engines that I put in power boats, if I need to drop one in it.
