220/240 diesel engine in 190 ponton


I have a 1960 190B ponton, and i am playing with the idea of putting a 220/240D in it.

I have seen this done before so i believe is not such a big deal.

But my main question is: Will the stock column shifted gearbox bolt up to the diesel engine?
I read somewhere that the stock tranny from a 190D would fit the 220/240D.

Note that i do not have the 190D but the 190B petrol engine.

Other known modifications to do this swap?

Another thing, i remember that i read an article somewhere about installing disc-breaks from a fintail on a ponton?
