New member & looking for mechanics answer

My name is Marc. I'm new here. Bought a 1988 MB 300E in October. Mint condition! Smooth, solid but too much of a gas guzzler. So I found a diesel with a transmission. My question is how much of a pain is it to replace the gas for the diesel? More specifically: Does the diesel sit too far forward that it affects the radiator position? Do I have to change the position of the transmission mount? Do I have to lengthen or shorten the driveshaft?
