transmission swap

ok I need a little help I just bought a 1995 roadmaster 5.7 with a bad tranny no reverse.
My local junkyard has a 2002 chevy 1500 4.3 tranny can I use that in my roadmaster low miles? or would one of these be better???

98 Chevy 2500 5.7 2wd
95 s10 4.3 bellhousing built on with a k on it but high miles
97 chevy van 5.7 bellhousing built on with no letters on the bellhousing


I don't mind swapping simple stuff around like inside wire harness or servo
I was going to order a corvette style servo.

Thank you

You could read the sticky at the top of the Drivetrain section that thoroughly covers interchangability.

i will make sure it's a 16 bolt pan. Yea I never would have thought a one ton van would have a v6 4.3 and 4l60e tranny.

thanks for the heads up
