engine change on a 1979 arctic cat Lynx 2000/s

I have a 1979 arctic cat lynx 2000/s that was given to me for free.. I have a 275 1979-1980 ac lynx twin cylinder )2000/t) engine that runs that i'd like to swap it for and have a twin cylinder.. is this an easy process? It seems like the block would just bolt right in... is it possible to use the carb from the single cylinder for the twin engine? and definitely I must ask ( i think its ok but) would the clutch from the 2000/s be ok with a twin mounted to it.. they seem to be identical sleds in every aspect except the cylinders... I need to know please help...

I didnt read that your first post right lol, I thought you had a twin motor layin around. I didnt reallize it was a whole sled. Ill get a picture of my 79 here in a minute. But I would imagine its not much different then your 80 but who knows lol

what i meant was that i have a spare 2 cylinder engine that i want to swap into a 1978/1979 2000s lynx, which is a single cylinder. my father seems to think that it should be pretty much a straight swap, but i wanted 2nd opinions...
