When I turn my air conditioner on in my 2005 GMC Envoy, it cuts my car off.

The envoy was notorious for this. Especially after a battery disconnect. I'm going to step out on a limb and assume your Envoy has the 4.2 liter inline 6 cylinder engine. You can fix this all by yourself if you are handy with a screwdriver and throttle body spray cleaner. Go down to your local auto parts store, and get yourself a can of throttle body/intake spray cleaner.
Pop the hood on your Envoy, and unscrew the big black accordion-looking tube attached at your engine with the screwdriver. This tube runs across the top of the engine from the air filter on the right side fender under the hood. Pull the accordion tube off of the throttle body. The throttle body is what you will clean out with your can of throttle body cleaner.
The throttle body has a large, round brass-colored plate inside of it. This is what lets the air into the engine, and is what is causing your engine to stall with the A/C on. It also has a black electrical connector on the top of it with about 6 wires going into it.
Back to the repair. Once you get the air intake accordion boot off the throttle body, and can see the brass-colored throttle valve, grab your can of throttle body cleaner and a *clean* rag you won't mind getting dirty. Spray some throttle body cleaner on the rag. If you have skin sensitivity to chemicals, you may want to wear gloves. With your rag in hand, push open the throttle valve. Be VERY, VERY, VERY careful NOT to drop anything inside the opening!
You will see black carbon-like substance around the inside diameter of the opening. Use your throttle body cleaner soaked rag to clean all of this black stuff off until you can see shiny metal beneath it again. Do this on the bottom and top and sides of the valve. This stuff is causing the valve to stick and sort of choke off air flow to the engine when the A/C is on. Cleaning all of it off will restore your engine's idle speed to normal.
You can spray the throttle cleaner inside the throttle body, but a rag helps to clean it off. Also note, that depending on how much you spray into the throttle body, the engine may have a rough start initially and idle pretty rough until it clears the spray out of the system. Put it all back together and tighten up the accordion boot on the throttle body and you're done!

How do i change push rod cover gasket on a ford 300 inline 6

Pull all the stuff out of the way of the cover, air filter, wires, anything that crosses over it, remove the bolts, remove the cover, clean out the old gasket, use no adhesive, especially silicone, and set the new one in the cover and carefully put the cover back on without losing the gasket, tighten up the bolts, put every thing back, all set.

Changed 5.7 350 motor in 87 chevy k5 blazer with same from 90 caprice, motor's only mod. was using throttle body from previous motor. Full tune up but from 35mph to 45mph it lacks power and drinks gas...

If you are set on using this engine for its increased power and fuel efficiency, the only way you will realize these benefits is by changing the ECM/PCM from the engine donor vehicle to yours, put the 90 model engine's throttle body back on it, use the engine wire harness from the donor vehicle--in other words, the engine has to think it's still in the Caprice, and the only way to do this is to put the Caprice electronics and fuel management system (throttle body) back on it. If you have to modify the throttle linkage, the kick-down/TV cable, to make it work, then do it. Also, you will have to put an Oxygen sensor from a 90 Caprice into the manifold/collector/crossover pipe of your vehicle, and not one for the 87 truck. If it wont fit, plug the factory hole on your truck's Oxygen sensor location with a threaded plug using high-temp thread sealant, cut/weld in a proper-threaded orifice for the Oxygen sensor from a 90 Caprice. If the Caprice had two Oxygen sensors, you will have to put one on each cyclinder bank's exhaust outputs.
Swaps such as these are great if all the details are attended to, but headaches if you just try to throw and go.
If you do all this, the codes will not come back after you reset them, the engine will run great, you will have better power and greater fuel economy (the Caprice and the Blazer weigh within a couple hundred pounds of each other), and you will have a 1987 K5 Blazer which "thinks" it's a 1990 Caprice.
And remember when buying engine parts in the future to tell the counter guy "It's for my other car--the 1990 Caprice."
You get less **** out them that way.

It may not have been required on that vehicle that year. I would expect the fuel economy on that rig is probably 9-11mpg.
