Is this telescoping steering column a direct bolt in for my 1983SD?

I am wondering, hoping actually that this telescoping wheel from the W126 1991 420sel sedan will be a simple install into my 1983 w126 300SD? My Dad is getting old and the ability to get a litle more room for his getting in and out would be a plus. My back is also fused and has a lamenectomy. This would also make it easier for me to get in and out of our new car. I emailed the seller and he says he is not 100% sure it will work in my car. Even though his ad clearly states it will work in my 1983 300SD. So before I buy this one, or a boneyard one I really want to know if it will work in my car. His price is low but his shipping is $110 to my door which is not inexpensive. Still for $160 total to my door that would be pretty short money for power telescoping for my steering wheel. Thanks for the help guys! John

Hi Steve this sounds good to me. Can you email me your phone number and a good time for me to call you? My car is still in the shop this week. Perphaps we can go there next Saturday? I am looking for 4 good used palamino interior color door panels. Wrentham is not too far South on 495 for me to get to from Framingham. It would be nice to find a good local source for some clean good used parts for my car. John
