2510 engine swap

I have a 1968 2510 diesel that is very restorable. It runs but with lots of blowby. If I decide to swap the engine that I believe to be a 202 to a running engine, I wanted to know your thoughts on going to a 219 or 239T engine if they will fit and what is required to do this swap. The serial number on my engine in the tractor now is 53RA-109120T. Maybe someone that has experience with these tractors can offer some ideas on the way to go. Is this a 202 engine?

Thanks in advance; Boowah

I have a 219 in my 2510. A 239 would be a little nicer. I have seen some 239-276 with turbo's in 2510's. Like posted below dual hyd's make this very hard and if you tried to use all the available power you would end up short on cooling or rear end parts. Tom

Yes you have a 202,,there are many options for a swap, 219 is the most common,,a 276 out of a 2640 is the most powerful option..they interchange well

I agree tim, changed the gas to a 219 diesel in mine, it does ok but still a little weak in the knees. 276 non turbo would be very nice, a couple things to consider: keep the water pump and backing plate off of your old Diesel engine for the new one, the water pump backing plate also acts as upper radiator support. If you go with a turbo version and have dual hydraulic remotes, I think there are fitment issues. If you go with 276 and use your tractor oil pan, you will have to grind out some in oil pan where number 1 rod is due to the engines increased stroke.

I was hoping for a 239, but couldn't find one. Then a 219 appeared close by. I had the pump overfueled 10%, and it has done well for me. This was replacing a 202 gas in a 2520. I would think the 239 would be enough.
