If you have manuals its going to be a lot easier-the 21s are the easiest. Plus the more you do the simpler it will seem.
If you hit a snag ask a specific question, much easier to help you at that point.
If you want people to notice your faults, start giving advice.

You may have more problems than just bolt lineups. Pullies and shaft size may also prohibit you from transplanting engines on them riders. It could take you an hour or less or much longer. One 21" transplant once took me 5hours and three bodys since i had a non bbc model and sp with different shaft sizes etc.
