Default Can you interchange an engine from an automatic to manual equiped car?

I know the engine numbers are different for an automatic and manual trans engine of the same year, but I need to know if they are interchangeable and if so, is it easy, or is there some difference in the crank? Considering buying a parts motor and was wondering. Thanks. 84 euro manual.

I've seen an M28/11 in a 3spd auto OB, so it can be done. I have no idea of what kind of work is involved.

IIRC you must change the flywheel and perhaps the bell housing

Cranks are the same different fly wheel and bell housing.

If the auto engine is going into the 5 sp car, don't forget the pilot bearing!
