Question New 300D owner

A few weeks ago I bought a 1983 240D. At some point in the mid '90s a 300D motor was put in it. The car overall is in good condition, but of course there are things that need to be addressed. I am most interested in finding out what year the 300D motor is. The serial number is 617010901. If anyone can decipher this or point me in the right direction so I can look it up I would be most appreciative. The local MB dealer parts dept. has no clue.

Question 300D number

I made a typo in my first post. The engine number I am trying to decipher is 6170110901 I left out a 1. All numbers i see for 300d's are 617.9--
I can find no decimal point, or where it might make sense to put one
