OM621 engine in a 69 220D?

I have a good OM621 diesel engine out of a 1960 180Dc, found a 1969 Mercedes 220D (om615) with a blown engine. Would the OM621 bolt up without modifications? Are they close enough for a straight conversion? It appears they are close in horsepower, Any suggestions?

That OM 621 is smaller and less powerful that your 220. Look for a 240 engine or even a 5 cyl, maybe a turbo.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
