Alternate engine 300E

I have a 1986, 300E car/shell with 140,000mi. Engine siezed 3 years ago. It has been in the backyard since. A mechanic (amatuer who has worked on American cars, mostly) friend and I are going to replace the engine. Will post in the classifieds for a 300E engine. What alternate engines can be used instead of the exact same year and model with minor modifications?
Thank you.

Any M103 engine will drop right in, they are all similar enough to fit without modifications. This means a 260e from the 190e 2.6 or a 260e. An M104 will fit, so will the new V6 and V8 engines, but all will require considerably modification.

The M103 is pretty common, you shouldn't have any trouble finding one.
