If your engine is already toast, to the point the truck isn't driveable, yank the engine, THEN order up the new one. Transfer over what you need, while both are NOT in the vehicle, then ship the dead one back. You can do most of the work before the new motor even arrives, just make sure to bag/label everything, so you can remember where it all goes.

Thanks HeyYou, Yes, Its toast, after all the lifter rockers has knocked around, no telling how long the previous owner ran it. I don't dare to try to rebuild and chance not knowing if all the oil channels are clear of hung metal chips. I've been saving the newspaper plastic bags for parts labeling. I was planning to ask Chazel in how he handled the AC compressor, and using the engine hoist, what needed to be removed forward of the serp belt and if he left the transmission on the frame. -- I'll be getting real serious in picking it apart as soon as the weather gets better, Powertrain Products has been calling.

Leave the trans in the truck. Support it though, so it isn't just hanging there. You *should* be able to just unbolt the compressor from its mounts, leaving the lines attached, and just move it out of the way. (wire it in place.....)

Listen to HeyYou. I had a shop do it for $1500.00 total with fluids and everything. Best price I could find. Great guy also, he owns his own shop. I was looking for a honest, good price, and good service. I found him and he is the only one that works on my vehicles. I will help if I can.
