so after about 3 or 4 months of owning the blazer iwas beating on it alittle on the highway and it turned off right when i got off my exit and didnt trun back on i almost crash beacuse of no pwer brakes or steering but i throught it in 4th and roll started it and when i started it a rod knock a hello loud one and huge power lose and the truck only had 110,00 miles so i saved my money and bought a jasper long block becasue it has a 100,00 miles warrenty the engine costed about 2000 with all new water pump plugs air filter etc not a bad deal so after getting starting the engine swap it was the most impossible thing and ive done a 95 before (my old blazer) and it was easy it had 700r4 and was easy to disconnect but with the manual the input shaft has to come out so much to get the engine out i pretty much had the hole tranny out in my drive way but here are my little bit of pictures i have from it i didnt take much cuz i was always to fustrated with the car
