Really dumb thought, but if the Zane motors are built around the 500 castings, will a Zane motor fit into an original 500 frame?

I think it's taller, the 750 is at least.

Won't be able to access the oil filter in the 500 frame.  Lower casing mounts will line up, but that's about all.  The air-cooled engines will definitely fit, been done a few times, but converted to carbs.  Reckon the 750 can be shoe-horned in, but don't see the point.  Gonna be an ugly, over-powered motherfucker with not enough space for all the gubbins required for injection and liquid cooling.

Stick in an Atlas 600 donk and be happy, at least they're half decent reliable.
