did you inspect the connector real good/ clean the pins/ look at the wires they go up by the manifold and can short out there. some cars need whats called a crank relearn by a higher end scanner, if the pcm, crank sensor or a few other things are replaced. some do some dont probably depends how close the new one is to the original. but i would lean more toward the wires or connector by how it started and now wont

How do you know it was the crankshaft sensor? The number one reason a Blazer doesn't start is a failing fuel pump, number two reason is the ignition switch. The crankshaft sensors is not a typical fail item on the Blazer with the 4.3L

there should have been a note with the rings mike the old sensor and new difference between old and newcould cause the new to come in contact with reluctor should have aproximate 30 ths clearence ifnew shows signs of rubbing may have done damage to reluctorwitch will mean replacing timming chain cover as not recomended to reuse will be hard to to reluctor damage with out removing wnile off check timming chainif high milage may need replace hope this sheds some light jimjo hand
