Will an AU 4.0litre engine fit into an EB?

Hello All,
I was wondering if an AU engine can be bolted into an EB the Block is effectively the same but the AU sump looks like it might foul the EB's K member.

Jim..

Don't worry about this post as I'e just done a search & from what I can gather I could use the AU engine with EB mounts & cut a hole in the sump for my clutch cable. Replace my radiator with an EF/EL one (for the smaller water outlet) & keep the AU serpentine belt and all that is driven by it.

Nah Id just use the EB's EEC4 & not bother with the AU's EEC5. I figure a shift lite circuit could be wired to operate the broad band manifold.
