Starter Motor for 85?

I have a 1985 Mercedes 300D I need to replace the starter motor. I bought one on Rockauto that said it fit an 85 but the cutout was on the right as you looked at it with the solenoid on top. When I took out my old one the cutout was on the left, like the 81-83 models. Anyone know what the correct part number is?

Any 300D starter engine will work, for the part number have a look at the EPC:

it is free in the USA.
