232 swap problems

First off thanks for the the info, it helped me out alot when I went to look at the 232 this morning. Everything was the same as my 258 except this 232 does have the 14.5 bellhousing pattern. So is there anyway to adapt this engine to my current trans/bellhousing (15.5 inches). The machine guy said he'd let me have the engine for $100. It is complete minus the head, bored .30 over, new pistons, rings, balenced and has new timing gears and chain and oil pan. I was thinking that if I can find a doner DJ in a yard then I could swap the bellhousing. Can this be done or do I need to swap the trans to? Thanks again for all the help. BTW I'm not really sure which trans I am running it is the three speed that came with the CJ5 '72 T90? I have also heard that I may be able to find the bellhousing of an International Scout with the same engine trans setup. Thanks in advance to all, Hope this post makes it through
