1977 k5 blazer in memory of lnc. Corp. Alec catherwood 1991-2010

i Currently lost one of my best friends who was serving our country as a marine over in afghanistan.

My friends and i are rebuilding his 77 k5 in our school in the back room of the auto shop.Were he worked on it two short years ago. We wanna remember him and what he did for all of us by finishing up his truck the way he wanted it to be.

we are running into some problems with certain parts and would be nice if anyone could help with their knowledge about K5's
and what the rear-end is.

We thought it was a Corporate but havent had any luck

We are trying to get the word out so please pass on the word

The project is coming along well.

we've ran into another problem.
we want to make this truck a true four wheel drive again.

we are really hoping to keep the heavy duty eaton rear end in it but the gear ratios dont match up to what we have.

with a limited budget its not as simple as buying new gears or axle.
if anyone has any ideas or parts that will work please feel free to notify.
if you got any insight please help.

The Eaton rear end:
32t Ring gear
9t Ring Pinion
3.5 Ratio

Mid-late 70's Chevy front axle
43t Ring Gear
14t Ring Pinion
3.07 Ratio

As you can see these ratio are too far off to have adequate 4x4 abilities.
