How easy swap 617.910 in place of 616.916?

I hope someone can help. My 76 240d is a w115 chassis and i believe the 300d is also. I have an automatic 1976 240D with the 616.916 that needs a new engine. I found a 617.910 engine (out of 1975 or 76 300D) already out of car with the trans, driveshaft and complete exhaust system. Only thing missing is the glowplugs!
Price is right ($300) only has 68k miles. I do not want to buy it if swap not feasible

What has to be done? Is radiator same? Driveshaft same? engine mounts? oil filter? glowplug? Will the ac unit bolt right on? Will the radiator fan bolt up from the 616.916? Will it hit the radiator? etc.

Need to pick up this engine this Saturday, Nov 3rd if it is a go!
