Take the rad from the 300, it's bigger. Re-align the driveshaft if that is possible, and replace the center bearing and carrier. Or get another driveshaft, it's far cheaper to get a used on it good shape than mess about with shortening and balancing the one from the 240.

You will need to move the tranny crossmember back, too.

I'd swap the rear end, too, otherwise you will be burning too much fuel. Change the speedos over, and swap the gear on the end of the speedo drive to keep the correct speedometer reading.
