Default Old ZDZ80 to New

Ok, I recently bought a 33% SD Yak used and the airframe had an older version, not the black head, ZDZ 80RV. I am trying to find out if there is any other motor that has the same bolt pattern for mounting the engine. I want to put the new ZDZ 80RV or the ZDZ SUPER 80 on it. I was also looking at the 3W 80XI for this plane. I think I read somewhere that they had the same bolt pattern also. Could I be right??? Where can I find a print out for any of these? Help please....thanks

I heard the older 80's run awesome. Why change it out?

I dont have it. i bought the airframe only from a guy selling it on here. I am looking for one and dont know what to buy. He wont get back to me with how old or what model it was. I think he said ZDZ 80RV, but was not sure what is different from the new ones to old.

Maybe this will help. Dimension of all ZDZ engines. The 80RV is the old one and 80 RV-J is the Super 80.
