Default Head swap

Hi Guys,

I bought a 1991 318is (e30) that has been sitting with an overheating problem. The head is cracked in two places on cyls 2&3 so I found clean/ solid looking head from an e36 318is (might be a 318ti) Circa 94/95 and want to know if the swap backwards is possible and what's involved if it is.

My casting # 1721464 then the #11 at 90degrees to the 7digit casting #k

The new head has #1721464 then #18 plus I think the cams profile looks different but I did not have them side by side.

Can someone let me know if the 1994/5 casting can be used with the 1991 head and if I need to swap the cams, valves, lifters, guides etc?

Thanks in advance for your help.
