TBI in Carb world

Well I just got my hands on a TBI 350. Some guy cooked a main bearing, and wanted to get rid of the engine, the truck wasn't worth saving. The part i'm wondering about is since I pulled everything from the serpentine assembly back to the tranny including the two ECM's is can I put the heads and throttle body manifold onto my carbed 350? It is out of a 78' chevy 1/2 ton. The engine would then go in my 86' (carb) Jimmy wich decided it didn't like it's 305 after 153,000 miles. I know a little but about ECM's, but not enough. What can you tell me? Are there any parts I definetly have to have, that isn't on the engine?
To do something common, uncommonly good, brings success.

Yes it will work, do some searching its been covered many times before.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways , beer in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOW, what a ride."
