Yes you can change the transmission gears but it is a major job splitting the engine cases. Even with the 83 gears it is till going to be buzzing pretty good at interstate speed with the 1000 final drive.
Correct but changing the final reduction gears to the 83 gears would help.

Even better would be the 1000 final reduction gears but I don't know if either would fit.

Ive noticed some differences in 83 engine block round sight glass,neutrial switch moved,casting lines appeir different,dont know about inside.
The shifter drum is totally different between 80-81 and 82-83.
If you use the shifter drum that came with the engine you shouldn't run into to many problems.

Looking at the 1100 tranney that i have the the finnal reduction gear on counter shaft 37 teeth-double ended gear on output shaft has 36 teeth. ratio of .972 are these a matching set, and if so a 83 tranney?
The 83 uses 39 and 35 teeth for a 0.897 ratio.
