replace a beat 20 year old motor with a used 20 year old motor , why ? ?

Well the motor is good on the 99 outback. But the 99 legacy motor is not. So i was jus woundering if the outback motor wuld fit in the legacy

I have been driving the legacy. The outback was giving to me cause i needed struts for my legacy. Im jus trying to get my car back on the road. And i been told that i mite as well swap motors cause the legacy is about to jump time. And the outback motor has been rebuilt

So will the outback motor fit? Please reply. Thanx :)
