94 S350 - Swapping in a 1987 300SDL OM603 - 3.0L

I've been reading that I need to swap the oil pan, and one member mentioned taking the oil pickup tube from the 3.5L and taking it to a machine shop and having it machined to get it to seal against the 3.0L block. Any ideas there? Also, someone else mentioned swapping oil filter housings. Anyone who was done this W126 OM603 to a W140 car that could offer definitive insight? Doing it at a location where I cant have it out of commission for very long, and done want it in the way. Is there anything else? I'm aware of alternator, AC Compressor bracket...etc.

Thanks a bunch!!
