om617 into a 64 220b

Sadly my 85 300 tdt is having major rear(sls) leaks, not to mention mega rust everywhere and a trans i don't trust. The good news is i found a 1964 220b (w111) pretty cheap and in fair shape. So my great running om617 turbo is going to have a new home. The 220 is a four on the tree manual trans and will bolt to the om617 perfectly along with the gasser m180 motor mount arms(sweet!). My questions are about any electrical components that may be key to it running properly in new(older) car. I'm a good mechanic but haven't really had to fix much on this, my first diesel so i dont really know if it needs all the stuff connected to it.I do know it runs fine with no alternator and a dead battery(guess how). Also is the vacuum pump and related system stand alone? The vacuum solenoid connected to the alda has been bypassed with no issues already . Any help from other om617 swap veterans and all the rest of the GREAT w123 people out there will be much appreciated.
