tranny swap?

Im considering swaping a turbo 350 into my 91 short bed 2wd 1500, It has a 5 speed now that detonated and im not having any luck finding a used 5 speed in my price range. Has anyone attempted this or done it?Is it possible? I Know the yoke is different and I can fabricate a trans mount plate but was wondering if thats all the fabrication required. I have a short tail shaft tb350 from a late 70s camaro for the swap. any feed back will be really helpful.

I swapped the original 4L60E in a '93 Chevy short for a TH350 shorttail and along with making a mounting plate I also had to have a driveshaft made for it. Just out of curiousity where are you located?

You just got to make sure you have tranny lines, shift link, i tried the pro shifter had too many problem i had to go to junk yard and get the factory shift link and also change steering column but yes it can be done but i cant get my speedometer to work.
