w123 axle swap , old style for new

My 1981 300D rear axle went out. I want to use one off my 1980 parts car. Reading the FSM it seems there was a change in design. I need to read it again but i believe there ar oil passages on the old style 1980 and before ones. I also believe they say replace old style with the new. Does this mean the old style can be used in place of new?

So my question is what are oil passages for and will the 1980 axle work on the '81? Thanks for any help.
