    Hey everyone this is my first post (I've been using these forums over the past 6 months while I've been doing my first motor swap and hunting down problems I've run across either while doing the swap or post swap fixes) I have a 1997 chevy s10 with the 4.3 and 4x4 I've been looking around the...
  2. S10 / S15
    So I have a pretty much stock 91 4.3 4x4 and I was looking at building it up. But my problem is I like off-roading but I still like speed and I want to make a decent balance between quick and strong to hold up to logging roads and mud holes but still handle good on the road.

    So I'm new to engine swaps entirely and have a few questions. I've seen questions about 4x4 and 5 speeds but not many 4x4 5 speeds. I am really wanting to drop a 5.3 lm7 in my truck. I'm curious as to what all I need to keep the 4x4 and manual transmission. If its at all possible, I'd like to...

    Hey all! So I recently bought a 2003 S10 V6 Crew Cab and am having an issue with using the 4 wheel drive function on it. When I first purchased it, the lights on the 2, 4L, and 4H buttons would come on (though I was never able to actually engage anything but 2wd), but now there are no lights...

    I currently have a 91 s10, 4.3 tbi 4x4. I recently installed the 2.5” rough country lift kit and put new 31s on it. If I were to put a 350 v8 into my truck, do you guys think the added lift and tires will cause a decent loss in HP? I want to be able to race it with some buddies on a “legal...

    So I have an 88 4x4 4.3 TBI and an 89 2x4 4.3 TBI. I like the body of the 4x4 (extended cab crazy clean interior, motor and trans frankanstien togather) but the 2x4 runs like new (single cab long bed motor and trans fresh rebuild) can I take the motor and trans out of the 2x4 and throw it in the...

    I recently bought an 83 s10 that was swapped with a carburated 350. It has the 2 vacuum lines coming from the carburetor spliced like 3 ways to go to the transmission, the 4x4 balloon, and the vacuum reservoir. I would like to know how the vacuum is supposed to be properly ran so that when I fix...

    I’m planning on picking up a 98 blazer this week as a project. It’s 4.3, auto, 4x4. I’ve been researching the awd conversions and it’s pretty straight forward but a question arose in my mind. Why can’t you run 4hi full time? If the gear ratios are the same front and rear, what’s the issue with...

    Hello I have a 2002 ZR2 and I am needing to put a new suspension/steering kit on it. My question is will a standard 4x4 kit work on my ZR2? I know the ZR2 is 3" wider but the guy at Rock Auto was no help. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I have a few questions. 1. my engine was replaced a few years ago and the mechanic who put it in says he bought a crate 3.1 carbureted for the Blazer but everything that I have bought for it like water pumps exhaust manifolds all of that is from a 2.8. I did a...
  18. 4wd SFA
    So I've looked pretty hard, but I haven't found anything. I'll preface this post with what I WANT to do. What I want is to do a solid front axle swap for my 1992 S10. I know there are kits I can buy to do this, but I'm trying to keep this a "budget" build by refurbishing as many parts as...
