240D Questions Front Sump????


I am new here and was searching for info when I came across it. Nice forum.

Are there any members out there who have "rear-sumped" the 240 or 300 diesel engines ?

I'm looking for real experienced answers. Ideas are great but nowhere as good as hearing from someone who has been there, done that.

I have a 1982 S-10 I want to dieselize with a MB engine. The chassis is rebuilt to hold the weight as I was going to drop-in a SBC.
I've owned a MB 240d and a 300SD and liked them both very much.

In NJ where I live I have the S-10 tagged as a "historic" vehicle so, no more inspections, ever. Also, the donor car is a 1982 240D, so no government problems as far as registration in more finicky states.

I'd really appreciate ANY help you can give with planning this.

Not really possible due to location of the oil pump.

I agree with Eric and will add that the actual oil pump extends down into the sump unlike on a chevy which has the pump mounted up high and just a tube coming down into the sump. I should think relocating it to a different sump position would be very difficult.
