Info on big block swaps for C/K trucks out there?

I am wanting to swap a big block in my 1500 which is currently a 350, the kicker is keeping all accessories. Although I have never heard of this for the 3/4 ton outside of the SS, I am thinking there cannot be too much to it with the larger frame trucks have factory optioned big blocks. Anyone care to share? Would be nice if I could just pull a long block with all accessories from an optioned pick up, but me thinks that would be just way to easy.

Mike

How many accessories do you have? A/C should be the same bracket (at the rear) for the same year truck. I'm not really sure when GM started using an aluminium "cluster bracket" I know both my old '93 and my current '97 have the brackets bolted to the block and heads. If the bolt holes line up, it would be a direct fit from a SB to a BB. Otherwise, you got 2 choices. Go aftermarket for brackets, or fab your own. Deep pockets, or a solid afternoon at a salvage yard, you choose.

In a while, Chet.
