    alright guys, i've got a 93 single cab 4x4 that has been sitting around the garage with tons of engine problems.. wiring, low compression, MILES UP THE YING YANG!!:boom: and the list just goes on. my older brother has owned it since 95 and the truck has been almost all over the state of texas. we're all chevy/toyota guys in our family and seeing as how i've got a few chevy small blocks laying around, i was wondering on how difficult it would be to fit just a simple 283 sbc in it? i know there will have to be some cutting and massaging to fit it in but what i'm wondering is, are there any sites that sell any kits for such a swap or would i have to fab everything for it:confused: i'd really appreciate any feed back :D

    just drop the engine off the local machine shop for a rebuilt...or, simply adjust the valves...
