    I have a 250 cid engine and would like to install a 350 crate engine. How hard is this project relating to engine mounts. Thanks

    well by the name id say you have an 81 1500 seris pickup. that is a relativly easy swap the engine mount holes should already be in the frame. all wiring will be the same with maybe an extension made on the dist power wire. radiator should be the same but i would install at least a 3 row. trans bellhousing is the same. you will have to have the power steering pump and alt. brackets from a small block wich are available at any junk yard. and after all that is said and done just send it on over to the exhaust shop. good luck its really an easy swap.
