The K5 Blazer was in good company this afternoon when I got word it was done and ready to be picked up from the transmission shop.

Checking out the handiwork.
The transfer case for the most part survived but it was rebuilt with new bushing and seals, and 312k miles of road grime removed.
The driveshaft couldn't be saved, this is my spiffy new one. The shiny pipes are the recent Magnaflows.
The transmission got a new-to-me used 'K' case cover and completely rebuilt, we were able to keep the original shift-kit in it though. You can't see it in the photo but it got a new HD Diesel torque converter as well.
The truck is driving awesome, shifts smoothly. All the slop in the column shifter is gone, it's actually aligned with what gear position it is in now. It goes back to the shop after a couple hundred miles so they can re-check everything. Lets see if I can get another 300k out of it.
