Cherokee auto I6 engine into 5 spd Wrangler?

So I'm getting ready to do an engine swap, due to hydrolocking and blown rods, found at least six decent I6, 4.0 liter engines at the local junk yard, but they are all sitting in automatic Cherokee's and Grand Cherokee's. I have a 97 Sahara 5 Speed. I'm planning on stripping the junk yard engine of all external accessories and replacing them all with my existing parts, seeing as they're in better condition. I would assume everything would be fine until I get to the transmission end of things. Will I need any sort of adapter plate to make it work on my manual transmission?

The engines are the same. Should bolt right up.
