OM617 into Toyota T100 Soon

I have a 300sd donor car and my 1993 Toyota T100 with a blown 3.0v6

I have an adapter plate to mate the om617 to a 22r bell housing, but my truck has the v6 transmission. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced adapter plate to mate the mb engine to my Toyota v6 transmission. I am able to cut my own plate if need be, but how would I perfectly line up the input shaft with the center of the crank?

I have one to go to a Ford small block, KEP doesn't list anything relating to Mercedes.
For alignment, I used a bare M5R2 case I had laying around, and used 4lb fishing line to make an X across each bearing port and the pilot bearing hole. I drilled the adapter plate blank to bolt to the back of the OM617, clamped the case to the plate, and shot a laser pointer down the bores to check alignment. Got it all aligned, marked my holes for the bellhousing bolts, and went from there.

I think KEP says to email them on other possibilities...
It is possible to make adapters like 4x4 did...
First thing to buy is a set of center punches.... HF puts them on sale once in a while...
very useful for other projects also..

Im doing a om617 swap into a 91 toyota pick up v6 5 speed. I had a toyota bearing adapter made off the MB crank. I also had to get the toyota fly wheel machined down to fit the bearing and MB crank and new crank bolt holes to line up with the MB engine. Then for the adapter plate i leveled and sqaured the MB engine and the toyota tranny on two rolling stands so i could slide them together. I than measured the distance between the two it worked out to be 3/4. i havnt found a 3/4 piece of aluminum so i made a mock up piece out of 3/4 plywood and than bolted everything togther. To make the the holes I used the MB spacer from the original tranny once i got those hole drilled i mounted it to the engine than slide the tranny and the engine togther(making sure everything was level and square) i than marked the hole with a center punch from he back of the tranny. If you would like any pictures send me your email and ill send you some.
