'95 vs '97

As I posted back in June, got into a accident with my '95, bent the frame and smashed up the whole front end. I found a '97 with a blown trans, motor runs. How hard would it be/what are the compatability issues with swapping my motor/trans combo over? I've been seeing on here stuff bout the pcm's being different, idk how that would affect me. Also I want to swap my trucks 3.55 axles in place of the '97's 4.10, my mileage in my old truck was awesome Thanks guys

Swap the motor and trans in, leave the 97 PCM in (assuming both trucks have the same trans here) and you're set.

Just noticed you're in Cali... if the 97 is a CA emissions truck you'll want to use the injectors, engine harness, and glow plug relay shunt from the 97.

Superduty, both the trucks are Ca Emissions. Just checking to make sure there's no difference in injectors/emissions/etc. Also, if I wanted to change the rear end would I need to swap computers/chips?
"95f350", I'm over in Winters. Where bouts up here are you?

Just swap the 95 PCM over. 97 california models had split shot injectors so it probalby wont work, but everying else will swap just fine.

5spd, I'm over in Winters. Where bouts up here are you?
The injectors, fuel system, and glow plug wiring on the 97 are different, you will want to use these parts on your 95 motor.
Honestly since only the trans is blown, just swap your good trans into the 97 and save some headache. Swapping axles to keep your gears won't affect anything.

Ok thanks guys. I'm mostly asking in case the motor in there sucks, no reason to do unnecesary work. The axles on these are all the same right, same mounting points/etc?
