Will a '79 240D engine mount up to a '83 240D manual transmission?

I thought I read something about an adapter a while back. Couldn't find it in the search. Thanks,

With the exception of accessories such as the AC, air filter housing, and vacuum pump, correct?

absolutley will mount directly up. Only consideration as you probably know is the flywheel. If you are going from auto to manual, that has to be changed too.
