240d and 300d parts compatibility

I know that 123 chassis have the same running gear but how about:
exhaust system downstream of the manifolds, injectors, vac pump, ps pump, alternator, transmissions. driveshafts, axles. Any parts the same?
What else?
I am looking at an 84 300d turbo auto parts car, super rusty.
I am thinking about using parts in my 82 auto 240
What say ye.

I would at least look for a non turbo 300, more stuff will work for your 240

huh? How much more stuff?

My 240d is too young to require parts, but everything sure seems consistent to me.

IIRC, the trans is different on the 240 to the 300turbo's. you should be able to use the driveshaft from the center bearing back, the flex discs (but I'd use new on those) the exhaust will not work, it's waaay too big. Well, it may fit, but you'd need a big doughnut to attach it to the engine, and a downpipe modded to fit.
snag the passenger's side mirror, if your 240 is without one.

The injectors have different pressure points.
Different transmissions, but vac pump and power steering should be the same.

i think the exhaust pipes went to 60mm diameter with the turbos, might be nice upgrade to a 240....

What mods would have to be done to a 240 manifold to fit them?

Certain manufacturers have a section in their parts lists that specify on which other cars the parts are also fitted.

See for example febi.com

Interchangeable.

Edit: Why don't you put the turbo five banger and 3.07 diff (with matching gauge cluster) in your good 240D body? Find a manual from another 240D and you'd really be set.
