Default 1.3L head on 1.6 16v block questions

I've been doing a lot of reading on the idea of putting a 1.3 8v head on a 1.6 16v block, basically because I'm in a tough spot. I bought a 1994 Suzuki Samurai a few weeks with a lot of suspension and drivetrain upgrades, but I didn't have it two weeks until the No. 4 piston went kaput. I live in Alaska and it would be cheaper to get a remanned engine than get my engine rebuilt, so I was thinking of going that route until a guy in town called me today and said he had a 1.6L 16v engine he'd sell me cheap. It has 15k original miles on it, which makes it really tempting to swap, but I am nowhere near experienced enough to take on the wiring job it will take. From all the reading I have done, a 1.3L head will bolt up to a 16v engine just fine, but it is important that the timing is set before turning it over as the valves could come into contact with the pistons if not careful. This would be nice because I could just hook all my intake and exhaust components back up and call it good. Many people suggest putting modeling clay on top of the pistons and checking clearance that way. An 8v timing belt is needed to compensate for the shorter long block dimensions with this set up as well. It would cost a fraction of the price of a remanned engine, IF THIS WORKED, but I would like to get some input from the people that know a lot more than me. If this was the case, then all I would need is to get the transmission adapter, new headgasket, and a 1.6 8v timing belt--I believe.

If this works I would like to know, because I also am nowhere near experienced enough for the wiring harness..

best of luck!
