1986 Chevrolet M1009 (K5 Military Blazer)
6.2L diesel engine
NV4500 5-speed manual transmission
NP208 transfer case
3.73 axle gears
GM 3/4-ton 10-bolt front axle with Eaton Posi.
GM 1-ton 14-bolt full floating rear axle.
Previous owners claimed to have completely rebuilt both axles.
5-speed NV4500 manual transmission swap completed in 2016. At that time I also installed:
* All new clutch hydraulics.
* Manual steering column.
* All new shocks.
* New glow plugs, rewired to run off of 12V instead of 24V (24V system is otherwise stock).
I have been daily driving it since then. I have recently reworked the engine:
* New engine mounts.
* New timing chain & gears.
* New water pump.
* New crank seals front & rear.
* New injectors.
* New gaskets & belts.
* New fuel filter assembly and hoses.
* New stainless steel mufflers.
Other mods include:
* Manual glow plug button (previous owner).
* New starter (24V MT28 upgrade)
* Electric fuel lift pump.
* Dual voltmeter (independently measures 12V and 24V systems).
* Temperature gauge.
* Tires are 245/75R16 on newer 8-lug rims. 75% tread.
* Driver seat & front seat belts taken from a newer truck. I'll include the matching passenger seat (split bench) if desired.
* Rear has been converted to use a standard liftgate and pickup truck tailgate.
* Bluetooth/USB/AUX/FM stereo.
* Adjustable proportioning valve to set the ratio between front and rear brakes.
The truck is eligible for Military Vehicle plates, but has a clear (civilian) title in my name. Military equipment includes bumpers, blackout lights, rifle holders, and miscellaneous bracketry.
