The engines will be the same. You could either swap over all the accessories or use the ones on the Fairmont engine. Are they both EB Series 2? I think there are some minor wiring differences between EB Series 1 & 2.

You could remove the gearbox with the engine. Just need to plug the end of the gearbox with a dummy yoke to stop the tranny fluid going everywhere. If the starter motor, alternator, etc are the same on both engines then engine wiring loom won't be a problem. Check the wire colours in both the engine looms to see if they match.

With the Fairmont cluster, you'll have to run a wire from the coil to the plug for the cluster. I did the same thing for my car. Have you got a repair manual for the car?
