If you are sure that is a combustion-into-coolant leak, just pull the head and have a look. If a liner has a hole in it, you will see it. i
left the Deere dealership just when we were selling the 55 series new. If it is turbocharged - I'd be more suspicious of a hole in a liner.
Kind of rare for a non-turbo 239. They usually need an inframe rebuild before the liners can get eaten up with naturally aspirated versions.

I'd make SURE you check the balancing shafts while into it. That is, unless Deere left them out. At the time when the 55 was new, Deere
sold a few of those engines with no balancing shafts and it did not work out well. They shook pretty bad at mid RPMs.
