Default Sportster engine swap

I am trying to put a 1988 1200 sportster engine (belt drive) into a 1986 883 Sportser (chain dive ) frame. The sidestand on the 1986 883 in in a different location than on the 1988 1200. It seams to be stopping me from getting the engine in the frame. Any help or advice would be greatly apreciated.Thanks in adance.
