Chevy truck-700R4 Swapping questions

ok, here's one for you guys.

my truck is an 84 chevy 4x4, longbed. it currently has a 700r4 in it. I currently have the chance to buy an 86 GMC 4x4 with a 4 speed manual trans. , for dirt cheap. The question is, is it more trouble than its worth to swap the good 4 speed in and take the slipping 700r4 out? Can it even be done? the 86 is a short bed.

another quick question= if that cant be done, what about swapping in a turbo 350 or 400? what about the steering column?

I know this one should be easy for you guys

thanks in advance for any help

Swapping the auto for the manual is no big deal as long as you use the transfer case that is with the manual trans!

Be sure to swap trans / t-case mounts also.

If you have the entire donor vehicle, it should be a breeze. Don't forget driveshaft lenghts may be different as well as your clutch pedal and linkage!
Not bad if you don't mind the work.

If you go to a th350 or 400 the t-cases adapters are different for all of these.
Just make sure you do your homework before ripping her down.
