What engine can replace the 250 L6 in my 1978 chevy c10 big 10 pickup?

Asked by Nov 13, 2014 at 09:05 PM about the 1978 Chevrolet C/K 10

Question type: General

The manifold is warped on oem and I believe it is typical for that year.  Is there another engine that could fit using existing mounts and transmission?

I wouldn't worry or mess with putting in another 6 cyl. Dump a small block 350 in. Very common to find, work on and install. That's my 2 cents worth.
