I did the same thing on my W123 some years back, although I had to rework the adapter plate a little. Even if Yorkie still works, going to Sanden 7 cylinder compressor is much more efficient, as...

I have always used 3M Yellow Super Weather Strip and Gasket Adhesive for sunroof and trunk seals and hood pads. It lasts for decades.

Adhesive needs to be on just the ends of the sunroof seal.

The more rare, the more value as far as classics are concerned. In the US there many more Diesels than gas W123s of any model. The fact that the TE is Euro makes it even more rare yet.
