Well, if you have the whole thing including differential and axles, it's simplest to just connect the good engine half. Then the answer to your speed questions is only a flip through the operator manual away. I seem to remember seeing the 6 speed info and the speeds were similar to the 8 speed. Is it the 6 speed where there's a lower gear in high and a higher gear in low range? Kind of a mind trip when you first see that layout. In my opinion, If you do have the rear axles too, I would just make the tractor out of that also removing any decals that say "4000." You would have a quick and cheap project for resale.
As to component swapping, you're more of the expert with that than I am. you may want to investigate final drive ratios--if it all bolts up you may come out ok. This would be a lot more work (research time) and parts hunting, you may discover you'll need a limited production part that's NLA to make all the parts work together. It does seem every combination you could dream up of a franken-tractor, Ford probably tried the same thing and sold a few to meet special needs, so a weird adaptor part should exist in some era.
Also if you end up a little slow, 38" tires could help make up the difference and may appeal to someone's row crop or clearance needs. Although it would look crazy on a general purpose model.

good luck
