Are we talking about swapping the entire engine and transmission, or just the block, etc? Your 76 XJ6 is a carberator engine. The 85 is fuel injected. Guess if you had a doner car you could swap the engine from the 85, along with various harnesses, and fuel system, such as gas return lines, pump, ECU, etc. It wouldbe a big project, but, depending on your ability, do-able. But, since your asking this question, it may be more than you would want to try.
