You would be going from a 2 cylinder to a 3 cylinder, so space may be an issue. If you go ahead, I would swap the transmissions also. It will be much easier to mate the existing shaft to the new transmission than get the new engine to mate with the old transmission. Check the reduction ratios and direction of rotation to make sure your current propeller is still OK.
