No, with the AU oil pan, you will need to modify the k-member for clearance. The AU will fit in all E- series with some grinding on the pan. :D

No. The AU block and oil pan are unique. The alloy AU oil pan has provision for cross-bolted main caps, so the earlier oil pan will not fit the AU block.

No. The E-series pan will not fit the AU block. The AU has cross bolted mains that go thru the sides of the alloy pan. Try and get an EL engine, will bolt straight into your ute, and just use your own manifolds, harness, ECU, etc.
