    Here's my two cents worth.
    Putting a small block Chevy in your truck is relatively simple.  With
all the conversion kits available, it should be a breeze.
    When I put the 265 in my dad's truck, it really made the oletruck cruise
nice.  We used stock  3 speed tranny.  Stock radiator, stock driveshaft and
rearend.  The process basically involves new motor mounts, move the steering
box to the outside about 1 1/2" .  Change to 12 volt electric and you're on
your way.  This all could cost very little, or a lot depending on how far
you want to take it.
    Good luck with your project.
    Oh yeah, I have 3 big kids and they pretty well drain the ole piggy bank
too, So I know where you're coming from.
