Not sure when the change was made but they did change the piston cooling from a nozzle in the block to the nozzle in the rod. You can make the blocks work with the right bearings or pinning the oil cooling hole in the main web. If you are completely changing out the complete running engine then it will probably bolt right in if memory serves me right. I was thinking, but could be wrong, when they made the change they also went with the Ambac pump which uses different gearing on front of engine. If you want to keep the Ambac pump then the gears will need swapping.

the oil pan and oil pump pickup arrangement will be different IIRC.

I would personally start calling yards. how far are you from Bryant Combine Parts?

You will have to swap off the plate that the fuel pump bolts too, this plate is what bolts the engine to the frame on the combine, and is flat. on the tractor it has bends in the plate to fit in the rails to hold the engine it is a little project to swap this off idler gear and the cam gear will have to be removed.
This is also the plate that the fuel pump bolts to. The tractor is going to be a Roosa Master, the combine could be Roosa Master or American Bosch depending on the year of the L3 pump mount is different. Not a big deal but you might have to change pump settings to match the combine. Everything else will be easy changes.
