Yes indeed. I wonder which one of us has it worse as far as the complications go. Are you having to modify the forward engine mounts? I could shim mine since the points in the frame were wider than on the case, but in your case I imagine that you'd have to cut them off and re-weld them, or something similar. I bet the sprocket alignment will be a headache as well.
It's nice when an engine swap (or any other part swap) is a simple bolt-in, but it's also rewarding to identify the problems and solve them. You end up with something more special that way. Good luck with your swap.
