I am finding cheap 190e's with manual trans. How much work is it to convert to diesel power?

If its a manual transmission you dont have to worry about anything. When making an engine swap, one of the biggest problems is to adapt the engine and the vacum lines to the transmission when its automatic. Remember, diesels produce more heat so check if your old radiator will be enought for the cooling job.

What engine are you going to use BTW? OM617, OM603?

I don't know yet which engine to use, I'm just starting out in my research into this swap. I know someone will say just to buy a 190d but around here in the NW of the US the prices are going up on those models. I just can't find a cheap 190d anywhere.
