Congrats on getting your 411. I did a similar thing last year when I bought my grandpa's 1955 401. It sat in the shed for 14 years until I bought it. It wasn't stuck but was the engine was totally wore out and needed an overhaul badly. Take care of the mechanical stuff first and then worry about the cosmetic stuff (fenders and sheet metal). You may want to pull the heads and look at the cylinders. They may not be salvageable requiring replacement of the sleeves which would take care of the stuck issue assuming nothing is wrong on the bottom end. Some parts are still available from Case others are available from John Saelli and others that hang out here.

I would recommend getting an owners manual, parts book, and a shop manual. They are worth the money and a good resource.

Another suggestion is to take lots of photos as you work on it. They come in handy when its time to put things back together. I also showed them to grandpa as I was working on the tractor. He's in his mid 80's and was excited when I bought it and more excited to see the pictures as the project progresses.

Like others have said take your time and enjoy it.
