BLOCK SWAP

1987 Volvo 760

Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Volvo 760 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 188k miles

Hello. I have a '87 760 2.3 turbo (B230FT) that has main bearing and crank problems. I also have a '84 2.3 turbo (B23FT) short block. I want to use this since it has the better crank and pistons. Can I interchange these two short blocks? Any problems with piston and/or valve height? Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you. Take Care, Bill
