It can be done but it's a pain. The biggest hurdle is the fact the later 240D has the oil filter mounted up top. A couple of ways around it but they are a trial.

The exhaust can be a problem. Shut down systems are different, glow plug system is different, gauges, etc.

Find an earlier model of 240D. Early '76 and older.
