Drive shaft torque setting


If you are referring to the outer bolt that keeps the axle tight through the hub splines then that value seems normal. The nut would be approx 32mm or 1 1/4 inch fine thread.

Shift lever


Possibly the lever's locking bolt thread has stripped or the thread on the bolt is worn. Another aspect is the splines in the lever are shot and/or the splines on the gear change shaft are badly worn. Remove lever and check the splines on both shaft and lever also check around the lever fixing section for any cracks. Check the threaded section of the lever with a brand new bolt the bolt should be easy to turn in and out by finger and should have no side to side play. When refitting the existing lever or a new one make sure the lever is a good fit on the gearbox shaft splines before you tighten the bolt.

Loose gear selector


the lever itself? is it the type with the 10mm bolt going through the lever (into a splined shaft)?
if so then either the thread's gone in the bolt/lever or the splines have gone on the shaft, otherwise it's the gear selector shaft/bearings within the box.
Hope this helps

The shift lever on the transmission is loose, seems that the splines are worn as the bolt is tight


Regrettably, this is a common problem on the five speed transmissions. Usually, not only is the shift lever worn, but the shifter pawl shaft is usually worn as well. To replace either is a major job. To replace the shift lever, the outer and inner primary must be removed. To remove the inner, the starter must be removed and the primary chain, compensator sprocket, and clutch assembly.

If the shifter pawl shaft is worn, the guts must be pulled out of the transmission. It looks like the shifter pawl will come out without doing this but it won't.

Repairing this problem correctly is a major job.

Transmission interchange


Yes, but the steps involved in switching the 4wd output shaft, over to the 2wd output shaft are very involved. Thats assuming that the bellhousings are identical. (detachable bellhousing) That you do not need a 30 spline input shaft for your torque converter (96+ blazer input shaft splines are all 28 splines, however you may need a 30 spline in order for the correct torque converter to fit your 2wd vehicle.) You will need to know what 2wd output shaft you need, there are quite a few variations. Then you would need to take the pan off, pull the shift soleniod blocking access to the lockup soleniod, remove the lockup soleniod, remove the pump bolts, pull the pump, unhook the 2nd/4th, band remove the reverse drum - 3/4 drum (by pulling the input shaft twards you) then remove the yellow snap ring holding the output shaft in place. Now the output shaft is able to be removed and switched. Re instalation of the drums/pump is tricky as well, as all the clutches need lined back up to slide back onto there corasponding splines. Long story short, it would be alot more trouble than its worth. : )

Clunk in trans


If this is a 4X4 then the problem is most likely the slip yoke not sliding smoothly on the transfer case output shaft splines. You can correct this bt lubricating the slip yoke splines with Teflon Grease .
If it is a 4X2 then lube the output shaft splines on the back of trans.
