4.3 engine trans and case, shoe horned into a yj

I have a not rd worthy 1995 chevy s10. has a 4.3 6, 5spd 4x4. I am wanting to put the engine trans and transfer case in to my 87 YJ that has a dieing 258and a poogot trans. Is it worth it, has anyone done it yet? I understand the 4.3 is injected and the 258 carbed, so elec fuel pump needed to feed the 4.3.
Can it be inline or does it have to go in tank? any thoughts on this would be helpfull

...and do some searching. What you are asking about has been done many times.

Good luck.

4.3's will take a beating! good motors... I looked at my wife's 98 blazer for the longest time thinking I was going to rip the drivetrain out and slap it between the frame rails.

look forward to the swap thread!
