Anyone have a running 6/53 GM motor. It would need to be compatible with a 10 speed R/ R and fit into an Acco tipper.

The engine to R/R compatibility shouldn't be as issue, but as far as the truck goes you will need to be prepared to alter the radiator inlets, radiator hoses, make your own front engine mount, as well as a free standing belt drive cooling fan, and re-plumb the power steering and air compressor, plus numerous other small things such as all the electrical connections (starter, alternator, coolant temp, oil pressure), a stop cable, exhausts, and air cleaner, the latter two most likely requiring a gantry to make their mounting simple.
