Ford motor in MM?

Harry I have what I think is a V MM 1952, motor is very tired. Don't seem worth the time and effort rebuilding it. I have a little Ford Pinto motor, that would fit nicely in it, with hardly any trouble. Anyone ever did such a thing. Tractor has little value as it is, not a rare one. Any ideas?
I notice no answers anyone on this MM forum!

Paul Janke The first thing to check is whether or not the transplant runs about the same speed. I would guess the original engine in the tractor ran at a much lower speed. Probably the second thing to consider is the torque of each of the two engines, and again, the speed at which that torque is developed.
