Dufour 31 mast and cutlass bearing question

I Sold my Sabre 28 and bought a Dufour 31.The Dufour does not have a mast. I am purchasing the mast boom and rigging from a Caliber 28 to use on the Dufour 31. The new mast is 1 to 2 feet taller. The Caliber has about 1/2 a foot wider beam than the Dufour. What sort of mods will I have to make. Might I be able to reuse some of the shrouds or stays? Will I need to move the spreaders. Can I use the new mast without making it shorter? Does anyone know what size cutlass bearing would be used in a Dufour 31
