I still don't know exactly what I am talking about, but try some of the vintage forums for cross-over parts. You may find that the CR top end fits or that there is a MT 175 barrel that will swap. After thinking about it more, I think one of the "sleeper" set-ups was the CR 250 top end on the MT 250 giving you a wide ratio
trans with a motor that can pull it.
Look here for a start. Good luck.
