83-84 ea81T motor
any 84 with an auto tranny (maybe 83 but less likely)
85-89 Hatch (with ea81)

As for converting, I don't think it'd be worth it. The hydraulic lifter engines have different camshafts, so you'd have to switch cams too. That requires splitting the crankcase. I believe you'd also need to use the rocker assemblies from a solid lifter engine.
If you were already going to change cams, then you might consider solid lifters, but I'm not sure if the lifter bores are the same size, etc.
