Re: Deisel

I had a 1982 Blazer 4x4 with a 6.2 Diesel at one point in time. It had a 700R4 tranny and NP208 transfer case (don't know if it was original equipment, though). The axles were standard 1/2 ton axles, with a 12 bolt rear and 10 bolt front. Axle ratios were 3.08 and fuel milage was somewhere around 22+ MPG. The rear axle was actually a corporate posi - the only 3.08 posi I have ever seen in a truck. The rig had over 240,000 miles on it when I parted it out. The whole body was literally falling apart. I'd still be driving the truck today if the body would have held out a little longer. Just a side note - I think a 6.2 Diesel is heavier than a 454 even though it's only got 378 cubes, so check the front suspension...
