option b was my original plan. just have the 1800 engine bolt right to the 1600 trans-axle and bell housing, etc. and, how's wiring match up? as far as i can see, everything looks the same or very easily changable. anything i should be aware of? thanks for your help.

i looked into this...
ok there is no such thing as a top mounted starter on an 1800 engine...
i went and found the only 81 brat in the area and took a look...
if you can get the bellhousing to fit then you're half way there...
you also need the belly pan from and 1800... or fab something to make it fit... the mounting points aren't the same from what i saw...

you will need the clutch cable from the doner car
the linkage for the main shifter should work but the 4wd shifter might need to be modified a lil bit at the end to make it work but should be ok for the rest of it cause the holes are there for the shifter tent
the 1800 will work just need to get the throttle cable from the doner too IIRC but all and all everything should fit
