1988 Toyota Pickup $800 or Trade for a Chevy Turbo 350 or a better stronger Auto Tran

1988 Toyota Pickup $800 or Trade for a Chevy Turbo 350 or a better stronger Auto Transmission for my 4 Wheel Drive Blazer. The Blazer has a 350 engine, so the Trans must fit the 350. This deal includes You installing the Transmission for me or Rebuilding mine could be an option if you don't have a trade and you can rebuild Transmissions. I can't do the work any more, have health problems... I will Also consider trading for a Dodge Small Block V8 Engine in good shape for my 83 Dodge Van, it has a 318 now and it smokes. Want to rebuild it? Or maybe trade for a 4 Wheeler, Dirt Bike, Trail-Street Preferred or Possibly a Chopper street bike. The Toyota Pickup has a 22RE Fuel Injected 4 cylinder with Auto Transmission. It's a Long Bed Pickup and has 140423 Miles on the Odometer. The Auto Trans with overdrive, works good, but it does make a slight noise sometimes when in park. Probably the parking gear, not sure. I had the Radiator acid vat-ed and cleaned. I believe the Motor needs a Head Gasket or complete rebuild. I bought it from a friend I thought all it needed was a fuel pump. It’s an in tank electric. They were pretty expensive so I did some research and figured out that a Holley Electric Fuel Pump which is really for a V8 Mustang would work and it was allot cheaper. So I put the Holley in since I was figuring I might do an engine swap one day anyway. I got it running and tuned it up, put New Plugs, Wires and Distributor Cap on it. I put some New Side Mirrors and one of those Chrome Rings on the front passenger side wheel, also the Seat Pad in the cab. It had some rusty spots on the sides, so I cut them out and filled them with fiberglass and body putty. I still haven’t sanded them down and painted them yet. After I started driving it, I found out that it was overheating. I took it to a radiator shop and had the radiator vatted and cleaned. I was beginning to worry about the Head Gasket by that time, since it always overheated after about 15 to 20 mile trips. The Radiator Shop confirmed that the Head Gasket was about to go. I parked it in Aug 06 and I just haven't felt like working on it, since I have some health problems. When I tried to start it to move it to the back, it wouldn't stay running. I think that water is leaking into the cylinders now and diluting the fuel. The Head is aluminum so it will probably need to be machined when you put on the new Head Gasket. I let it set for a while and now the motor wouln't turn over. I think it's rusted up from the water leaking into the cylinders. Thus I think it would be best to rebuild the motor. The tires have good tread and it drives straight. It has Fuel Infection and is rated at 22mpg. I took the radio out, but I have another one for it, if you wan it. This would be a great Truck to Hot Rod or convert to a 4x4 Monster

Truck swap for Trans work

A friend of mine told me about your Toyoat and the need you have for some mechanical work. I'd like to come out and take a look at what you've got going on in order to see if I can offer some help. I'd be interested in the Toyota you've got in exchange for replacing the trans in your blazer, if that's still an option.

Thanks, Brian
