Remotoring a Rivarossi Y6

Re: BLI N&W H2a HoppersI want to revamp one of my poor runners, a Y6b with the cab-mounted can motor. Its very balky, I got the unit from someone and it was obviously not well-cared for. Even with alligator clips on the motor contacts, it runs in fits and starts and not steady at all on the bench. I was wondering how huge an undertaking it would be to replace that motor with something else. I have another motor that runs better from a junked Riva loco but the holes in the motor case don't match where they need to be to swap out motors.
Any recommendations?
