the injector spider assy is under the intake plenum. typically they leak and that causes odd richness and misfiring problems with them. if you pull the plenum off and find a lot of raw fuel thats the issue

Spray brake cleaner around the intake gasket and if the idle bogs down then you know you have a leak.

Test that the temperature sending unit in the water system is working properly. When the engine is cold, the computer puts it in cold start mode. Once warmed the temp sensor tells the computer to stop sending excess fuel to the engine and taking the cold start mode to off position. If the sensor is faulty, it stays in cold start mode and keeps dumping excess fuel into the engine causing your situation. Like your running with the choke on after warm-up.

that gray wire is the fuel pump power supply . You cut the wire were an positive tested it ??? An what does that mean . you positive tested it ? Wish you people would learn to talk like a mechanic would ! If you cut the wire near the relay an checked with a ohm meter or a test light with B+ volt , of couse it going to show ground ! It's going through the fuel pump windings to ground on the other side . What fuse keeps blowing ?ECM B - 20 amp ? This powers the fuel pump as well . May not even be the fuel pump circuit blowing the fuse . You need to find everything that fuse powers and isolate the different circuits . Videos on youtube showing how to find a short .

When it is in 4x4 check and see if you can turn the front drive shaft. If you can the problem is in the front end. If you can't the problem is in the trasfercase.

They are not interchangeable engines on your vehicle and unless you have thousands of $$$$ to spend on the conversion to make it work don't even consider it. It will be more economical to upgrade to another vehicle.

Open circuit to PCM - the engine computer grounds the other side of the injector there by turning it on an off very rapidly . This is call PWM - pulse width modulation . There is a transistor in the computer that does this . Or the PCM is bad !

sounds like the ignition tumbler. if it is in park and you can't turn key back its the tumbler will have to replace the ignition tumbler and you can get it re keyed to your old key so it should not be to bad

Does the engine have spark to the spark plugs? Is there 12 volts to the coil and is the coil being triggered on the ground side? Check to see if the coil is sending spark to the distributor. Several more things to check that will not let the truck start. Check these and get back with me and I will help you more if needed. Good luck.
