Can a 1940 Roadmaster Engine be used in a 1936 Roadmaster?

The thing is that the rear main bearing is slightly longer on the -36 engine compared to -37 engines and onwards, (ask me why I know), which forces you to rebabitt if you want to use your original one. Mine was rebored to correct tolerances without any use of shims and I now feel good in my mind knowing I was able to keep the original engine. The cost is of course essentially higher, but what would you not do to stick to originality.
