1983 300d turbo engine in 1980 240d
I had a very nice 1983 300d turbo diesel with an automatic transmission, my son wrecked the car (probably saved him from serious injury or worse). The engine is in great condition, car is totaled. I purchased a 1980 240d with a 4 speed manual transmission. The 240d now has so much blow by that it is hard to keep oil in the engine. Here is my question, will the 300d engine bolt up to the manual transmission, without changing transmission location, different driveshaft lengths, shift linkage, etc. Both are 123 chassis. Thanks to anyone who can shed light on this swap!
