you bet,just make sure that you can use the other truck for donor parts,you'll need the computer and harnesses if you want to use the fuel injection. i recomend just putting a small block in it, you'll accually improve fuel economy and it makes the truck feel like a truck. you wouldn't regret it

There is no way to mount the mechanical fuel pump on the later block. A cheap parts store electric pump will work. Don't know the exact year they changed from the V-belt setup. My '85 had one of both. There is a chance the '86 may have a reverse rotation water pump.


I will second the V-8 advise. I have one now and I don't think I will ever run another without. Dan
