Will an 83 22R head fit on an 85 22R? I know the block is shorter and the timeing gear is different. I thought if I use the 85 timeing gear it would work. But I can't seem to find any info on such a swap. I have a cracked head on the 85 and a seized bottom end on the 83. Hopeing to make one good engine. Thanks for any help.

Nope. The combustion chambers are different as can be. Take them apart and look at the difference in pistons and heads. Your compression ratio would drop to something like 7:1.
