Yes if you find the right truck with the wrong engine, buy it.
Who was the German guy that rebuilt a Sanky and posted that cool mount for replacing an LT230?
That guy could make engine mount brackets to go from the 19J over to the 300TDI mounts and problem solved.
Then the stateside swap back is just a bolt in.
