Question Quick question about about different engine years and parts compatability. HELP!!!

My friend has enheireted a 1971 5.7 350 engine with a bad crankshaft and a 1986 5.0 305 engine with a bad block. Is there any way he can put the two together to make one good engine? Are they compatable? Another question is that the whole entire skirt on one of the cylinders of the 86 block is missing and the cylinder wall is gouged, can something like that be sleeved? If you sleeve one cylinder do all others have to be sleeved? Thanx afor the help.

I think they used the same crank but I wouldn't use it, they aren't that much to buy a new one you know will be OK. I'm pretty sure they can sleeve that cyl. and I don't think you have to redo all cyl. at the came time. Wish I could tell you all this with more certainty. I would contact a local machine shop, ask them about resleeving the block and if he is coing to use the old crank, find out how much the machine shop would charge to redo it.
