\'80 258 Long Block in a \'82 with a 258

Other than the crank and the head bolts being different does anyone know if there is anything else that are different about these engines? I am wrong in thinking that a 1980 258 will bolt up to a T-5 tranny in my 82 CJ7?

It sould bolt right up. 80 is a good choice, heavier crank flywheel, a little more bottom end.
