grafting a violin neck on to an old violin

I would like some ideas on how to join a different neck on to my very old fiddle. The original neck was not dovetailed into the violin like most violins.
The block and the neck were all of one piece of wood.
Also The neck has had a grafting done in the past, but the neck is too short and neck angle is not right.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Jim,
Do you have any ability to post a couple of pictures of this neck and how it's joined to the body? I've only worked with the dovetailed type and I'm not sure I understand how it's joined.
