Default Auto to Manual trans Swap

Just wondering first of all how hard it is, and also what transmissions can be used to do a swap from a truck that's an auto to make it a manual. I recently bought an 87 from a buddy of mine with a strong slightly worked 350 and I would love it if it were manual. I don't want to sound stupid by asking how hard it is, but I am mainly asking if it's worth the effort and if there are many common problems that I might run into doing the swap. Thanks.

I would actually like to know also, I've been thinking about doing the same thing to my '80 K5.
