Engine swap 190d

I have a 1958 190d with a bad engine. There is a 190d engine for sale locally that the owner claims is from a 1961-1964 190d. I assumed this would be swappable but in speaking with him he said someone had come to purchase the engine only to find that it would not fit there car. Neither I nor the seller now knows what car the other gentleman intended to put it in but i thought id check compatibility here. Fintail era engine going to fit into a ponton era frame?

leave it up to weezy baby

The engine mounts are different but go and look at the engine and see if the Ponton mounts can be fitted on the Fintail engine.

What's the matter with your engine?

Maybe it needs the injection timing set. The compression could be low and it needs new rings. Generally speaking, the Ponton engine mounts are at the front of the engine while the Fintail engine mounts are a the middle of the engine.

Please take some pics of the current engine and post them. the Ponton group might be able to help as well. Someone might have a spare engine.
