Swapping 350 engine from 1500 auto to 2500 manual


Asked by Aug 03, 2016 at 02:14 PM about the 1988 GMC Sierra 2500 2 Dr K2500 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm looking to replace a motor in my 88
GMC Sierra 2500, it has a 350 and manual
transmission but I found a cheap 88 Sierra
1500 with a strong 350 in it although it has
a automatic transmission.  Will I still be
able to use the engine without any serious
headaches?  Also unsure if it's worth
noting my truck is 4wd and the 1500 is
2wd.. thanks for any help!
