    Nope, I considered doing the same thing when I first got my 79. Will have to do a complete swap. I bought an 84 to do a clip swap but changed my mind at the last minute due to my bumper and all. A search will help you find all the answers on a clip swap. Not much to it, I pretty much have the majority of my front clip off now to pull my motor.
