Engine interchangeability

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, new here but have a few machines and have questions about engine interchangeability. I recent read that the C135 engine is based on the C123 and that the C135 evovled into the C153 and the diesel option for the C153 was the D188 so the big question is can a D188 be used in place of the C135 or even the C123?  Thanks in advance

IT all depends on the application the c135 block was cast in at least 3 different configurations that are distinctly different and not adaptable from one to another I am not certain how much different the front are cast

tractor to tractor the rear will likely fit but the front will need adapters to /for your particular front end

the 188 was used so little ,you will have to fab parts or stumble over 30  135/153 or 60 123  looking for mounts/front bolster

if I had any spare 135 would trade you
