Post 305 - 350 swap

Hi All

I have an '86 GMC 1500 Pickup with a 305. I'm a recent Chevy convert, coming from the BLue Oval universe... I am looking for places to look for a cheap 350 to replace my current motor. Also, how involved is the swap? I am mechanically inclined, but by no means a pro... thanks for any help any of you might have!

The motors are identicle size wise and will fit exactly the same way, so swapping is no problem.
There are tons of crate motors for sale, but Id hop on ebay. They jave tons of em on there. Or go to the search on your comp and type in crate motors. Should pull up tons of hits. HG

Cool

For a 350 go to your local classified ads or auto recyclers (wrecking or junk yard) and you should be able to find whatever you want or need. One of the easiest swaps in the book. Think of as swapping a 289 for a 302.
