the starter is on the opposite side. The bell pattern is different. No clue how the vacuum modulator would react, nor the little detent lever on the throttle (which is also on the wrong side).

Isn't this a great time to go for a 5-speed stick that bolts up to the M104? Then you only have to worry about finding a W114 clutch pedal & shifter, M102/103/104 flywheel and customize the drive shaft a little. (And maybe learn how to drive a stick?)

I would do a m112 swap over an m104. M112 is superior in every way.
