Kmertz,

The blocks are a bit different. I believe the 02 crankshaft has a slightly larger counterbalance which requires some additional material to be removed from the block. Otherwise the blocks are the same, except for the already noted fuel pump hole. I would imagine that you could set the crank in the block and rotate it to find where you need to remove material. I have a pdf that describes the changes somewhere at home.
