Engine Swap

Asked by Jan 04, 2018 at 12:11 PM about the Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

All,

I have got a bit of a head scratcher here, at least for me it is.  I have bought
a 1968 Mercedes-Benz and I need to know a few more things about it as I
get started  working on the vehicle.  

First off the engine has been replaced at some point and I am being told that
it is a 240D (the car was originally a 250).  The chassis number does confirm
that the car is a E type 250 model (114 010 1 0 017357).  The engine
number is what is giving me some issues.  All the paperwork that I have lists
the number as 615 940 101 9806 which specifies that it is a 200D from a
W123 model.  Now that I have confused you, here is my question:  

Could the 200D fit on the original transmission from the 250 or would the
transmission need to be changed?  Also if the engine is a 240D would it fit
on the original transmission?  Thanks for all your help.

John
