Check that the first gear ratio of the 230 is ok for the diesel. I know the 280 has a longer first gear than the diesels.

If my memory is correct the diesels are 4.7:1 and the 280 (petrols??) are 4.0:1.

I'm confused. Is it a 230 box or a diesel box.
Remember the starter is on opposite sides.

Did the 230G (carburettor engine) not have the starter on the right also. You are correct Alan that the GE is on the left, but I think with the 4 speed gearbox it has a detach able bell housing.

Apologies Pierre, so much guessing on my part.

you can use a gearbox from W123 - it will work ( need to change output flange ) , does not have the low 1st gear. Teeth not as strong. You can also use a W123 starter and glow plug relay.

Yes Trevor can help,

But I decided to change the round mounts to square mounts.
Remember to check sump and diff collision and adjust engine mounts forward - normally 15mm is enough. Remove springs and allow chassis to lie on bump stops..
