MACKEYAUTOREPAIR is on a distinguished road

I'm swapping motors right now, pulled both and got one done. One is a 2001, 1500, auto. The other is a 1999, 2500, manual. I have the one from the 99 installed in the 01, been drivin it for a couple weeks. All I had to do was get a bushing to put in the auto crank to accept a pilot, swap crank sensors (manual to auto is different), and swap fuel rails, the injectors are different so the plug in was also. My alternators were the same, along with all the other sensors. My pipes bolted right up to my manifolds in the first one, so I assume they will in the other. The only advice I have and what I will do on the second is to pull the motor mounts off the block, get the tranny plated up, then put them on. It was a bear getting them up, down, and in, all while trying to hook up the trans. Funny thing was, I swapped a V10 a few years ago, and don't remember it being an issue!
