    This will be my first engine swap in a GM vehicle. I have an 87' 1 ton that will be getting the heart out of an 89' K5. The K5 is an auto and the 1 ton has a 465 in it. What is the best way to go about this. I will have to do the swap in my driveway using the tractor as a hoist.

    TIA for any tips and hints.

    Well LABEL EVERYTHING!!! that is the most important step including all connections, wires, and hardware.

    Also on the engine you are swapping in, you have to switch the stock flex plate for the flywheel and clutch off the 1 ton.
