MB made the first 300D w115 in '76 I think . so any 300D will fit if you have the right motor mounts. As you note issues with mounting accessories will have to be sorted .
I have both 114 and 123 240D engines , just accessories is the installation difference . Not much room in the w114 engine bay for the power steer pump and a/c , but I think driving a/c with the lowly hp is a challenge anyway.
While you have the diesel out and accessable , think about installing the fast glow plugs. I cannot think of any other things that will cause a problem, or be of benefit.
