Scan for faults probably a back up sensor not working, the scan will point to which one(s) check for corroded wire harness left rear side of box near the bumper. Heated seats if the control button lights up while running then go off probably a grid burnt out in the seat cushion or the seat back if no lights then it points to control or wiring,may set a fault for this also.

the timing mark indicates where the no 1 piston is in the bore. It can be at tdc compression stroke (firing) or at tdc exhaust. If it is on compression stroke ( test by removing no 1 plug and feeling the pressure under your thumb) then the rotor button will be pointing to no 1 HT lead in the distributor cap. If it is on exhaust stroke the rotor button will be 180 degrees from no 1 ht lead . It it is point to no 1 HT lead on compression stroke the truck will start ___IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT FIRING ORDER FOR THE ht LEADS ) and if it is 180 degrees out it will not start. If it starts and runs but backfires then you will have the firing order wrong on 2 leads

It can be done but you have to be careful about a few things. From 1971 to 1992 was the original LA (small block) engine, 1993 and up are the Magnum engines. They are different in some ways but the most important in your situation is that although both are externally balanced, the two are balanced differently (the 360 Magnum uses lighter pistons) and each requires a uniquely balanced damper, flywheel, drive plate, or torque converter. It would be easier to stay with a Pre 1993 engine if possible. Otherwise make sure you get the convertor / flywheel with the engine.
