I will try to source a 15j movement.

Should I be looking for a 1932, since my case serial number starts with a 2?

Did Bulova use previous year movements in newer cases?

Also, my shield looks like it has been over stamped with a T. I have seen other 10ANs on Ebay like this. Would this be a 1931/32 transition?

changes could have occurred during the life of the watch, the movement could be replaced by a watchmaker during repair

My case has 174741 on the outside and 2073696 on the inside... what is the correct serial number?

Either a 1931 or 1932 movement would be correct for this watch.

My recollection is that we use the INSIDE s/n on the double s/n cases. I think the crown is a clear replacement but I would keep the movement right where it is, it's a 1931/32 date code.
