All the blocks are NOT the same. And while you can run an earlier engine in an older truck you can NOT interchange all the internals. The later blocks have more material taken out of the bottom of the liners for crank clearance. If you try to run the wrong crank it will hit. But as long as you use all the right internals that you need to use you can build a short block out of any year to work in any year of truck.
