Thinking of buying a 206d

Hi guys,

I'm thinking of purchasing a 1974 Mercedes/Hanomag 206d. It is a high-top camper, but I want to gut it out and use it as a cargo van, an OG Sprinter I suppose. My only concern is the engine. It has a om615 diesel which is not currently running. The question is: Can I swap out for a om616 and still bolt to the 4spd manual? I think I saw an older w115 that went from the 220 to the 240. The 240 engine is more plentiful here, plus the added 15hp wouldn't be bad either. Thanks in advance!

You can bolt the OM616 to the 4spd manual.

The OM616 car engine has its oil dipstick on the side of the engine, the OM616 engines used in vans has the dipstick on the front. There might also be some difference in the location of the oil filter.
