cruisomatic to E4OD swap??

Hey Everyone,
I have a question on a transmission swap that I've been thinking about. I don't know too much about transmissions, so sorry if some of these questions are dumb, but here goes:
I have a 64 fairlane with a 289 in it, I just finished the motor and built it up a little bit (you can check it out here if you want a little more background info) and it's got the original 3 speed auto cruisomatic tranny. When I rebuilt the motor, it was really worn, so I'm betting the transmission will need a rebuild real soon. Now, I also have an E4OD transmission out of a 1989 full size bronco, with a 5.0 engine in it. My first question is, how hard would it be to swap the E4OD for the cruisomatic? Are the bellhousing patterns the same? I would probably need a new flywheel, right? If anyone has done a swap like this, let me know how it went.
My second question is, would it be worth the time to swap the E4OD for the cruisomatic? Or should I just keep the cruisomatic and rebuild it? I have the E4OD in my daily driver bronco, and it seems like an ok transmission, what do you guys think? Thanks for any input, and for all your help!

The large size of the E4OD makes it difficult to fit into regular passenger cars, limiting it mostly to truck or big-block swaps.
Technical data below. Make sure to read all the pages on the E4OD. You also have to provide an electronic shift controller for it.

It would be much easier to go to an AOD.
No computer to mess with. Just proper linkages.

Peruse the entire webpage I gave you. It will also cover the AOD and which ones to look for.
