Can a power sunroof be converted over to manual?

I have a 1980 300D with a power sunroof. It isn't working and will try this weekend to do some trouble shooting. If it turns out to be more of a pain than it's worth, I was thinking of converting it to manual.

I have access to a 1981 240D parts car that has a working manual roof and it appears to be the same size and at least a similar track mechanism.

Question is will it directly retrofit? I.E., pull my roof out and pop the other in.

If its any help the motor for the sunroof can be found in the trunk on the left hand side just below the rear screen, it should also be possible to operate the sunroof manually by turning socket just above the motor. The motor is staight forward to remove. hope it helps good luck
