Ford 170 and 200 6 cyl

I am building a 200ci I6 and i need some parts that are hard to come by like timing chain covers and things of that nature.

Are the 170 and 200 parts like timing chain cover and distributor interchangable? i found a 170ci for sale real cheap. i dont need a crank and i know the 170 has four mains and 200 and 7 mains anyway. Just wondering about everything else basically.

Such as:
Timing chain cover
Oil pan

Those are the major ones.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice you may have

timing chain cover is all that will fit, possibly the flywheel.. the head will physically fit but there are issues with running a 170 head on a 200... other than that, nothing will fit.

if you want a parts engine, look for a 1978-1983 200 6cyl engine.. it'll have all the parts you need.. and a really good flowing cylinder head, compared to a '60's head.. a '80- up EO-XX casting head is the best.... due to the chamber size being 10cc bigger, you will need to run 2.3 HSC pistions ( flat top ) to keep the compression up... also, you should machine the head .025 to compensate for the no longer available .025 compressed shim gaskets.. thinnest gasket available now is .045 compressed.. you will need .025 thick hardened washers under the head bolts, but there available
