I just wrecked my wifes 99 Tahoe. And I would like to install the engine trans combo into my 69 short step. Has anyone done this and how difficult was it.

There is a great article in Classic Trucks magazine, 09/04 edition, along with contacts for the various components required. Issues are: engine mounts, reprogram the computer, transmission cross member, requires high pressure fuel system with return line, etc. Overall they say it's a relatively easy switch.

Thanks for the info. I have a sub to that mag and I am trying to locate it. I also found that painless has a harness for a universal fit just for this engine,trans combo. Thanks again Jim

I see Early Classic Enterprises in now making engine mounts to convert to Gen III motors in 67-72 chevy trucks.

Shouldn't that be 09/05? IIRC, it was just in the last couple of months.
