For all that work and not knowing if its going to turn out right, I would just go to the boneyard, get myself a 350 that looked decent and drop that in and be done with it for 250 bucks. Swapping a motor into a truck like that is baby poop.

what can i move from my engin to a differnt engine?
everything but mains? can i get a new bare block and install my stuff?
my engine was real tight still so no rebuild is nessasary.

it smoked just a little a start up

what about this?http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...tem=7927357774&category=33615&sspagename=WD1V
no dude, you can't do that. You don't know what overbore you'll need and all the parts are going to need to be machined to go into the block. Plus if you consider the cost of gaskets and such you're further ahead spending anywhere up to 500 bux for a decent engine. WHy not get an early 90s motor with a roller cam and a one piece main? That way you're turning a screw-up into an upgrade!

good god, if you're looking into getting a new truck, maybe you should rethink just getting a welder to fix the ear on that block and save yourself all this hassle!
