differences between Volvo MD17c and MD17d ?

I have a Volvo MD17c and it is running fine. I have owned it for 27 years.
I have been offered a Volvo MD17d for spare parts and not for very much ( 500 ). It has 1500 hours on it (claimed). That's not much in this game.
I have looked at the pictures of the two motors and there are seemingly-subtle differences.
The C model has decompression levers, the D does not.
The D also has a different set-up for the cylinder-head injectors.
The starter motors look the same, the gearbox looks the same, the injection pump looks the same.
The fuel filter arrangement is different but I could live with that.
I trust that crank and pistons are the same.

Any advice would be appreciated.
