Question. Will a OM617 out of a W126 300SD fit into my car? I think like a 1981

Yes it will fit. The engines are essentially the same. In terms of output the OM617 motors in later cars had more power. Yours is only 110hp (new) and the later engines were 125hp (new).

I can't say exactly how the throttle linkages will fit but you can probably swap what you need off the old motor.
