What is the problem with your current engine?
A swap may be a bit quicker, but remove and rebuild will be far better!

Haven't looked through link John posted, but sump will probably come into play. Needs to recess/wrap around front axle.

EDIT - Self inflicted here - should have read through the link before I posted.
