'81 ignition assembly interchange


I was wondering if the ignition switch assembly was interchangeable in the w126 body between gas and diesel. I understand that the diesel version has the vacuum shut off. Is it possible to start and operate (including the glowplugs) a diesel with the gas ignition assembly? The specific car in question is a 1981 300 SD.

Thank you for any assistance
