You realize that you have to swap the ENTIRE drivetrain right? Including the transmission, and I'm pretty sure the rear diff as well (could be wrong on that tho). Some of the linkage bits, and such. Probably the exhaust, transmission cross-member etc, etc.
It's not a trivial swap. It's a major gutting of both cars, and reinstalling everything. You are also going to be dealing with electrical stuff as the 81 will have an electronic distributor, and the 79 will probably be points/condensor. Not sure how well it will all mesh, but there are always headaches with this sort of thing.
