With the head off it is pretty easy to check to make sure the block is true with a simple straight edge and use that to check it. And yes you can pull the pan with out splitting it but no way to pull the block with out since that is part of the frame

I know that Lapping was an accepted way or re-conditioning the valves in the past... If there was much pitting or recession, you can end up with a "Seat 1/4" wide... That will only trap carbon and Leak.. I would advise having a good Valve Job done while you are at this..and install Umbrella-style (Ford) Valve seals on the Intakes..(Yea, Yea, I KNOW they "Didn't come with them"..put then ON anyway)..!!!

Is there something that leads you to think the Head Gasket IS leaking..?? Foaming in the radiator, or something..??

Possible, the top Compression rings have been shattered, by use of Ether.... Cast Iron Rings WILL shatter if pre-ignition is encountered...Something to be aware of.. Nodular-Iron Rings are Ductile and will NOT shatter, like Cast... Always check to KNOW what you are getting.. Ron..

story is I've had this tractor for a long time, It started running a little weak And had a small pop in the muffler. determined it to be a vacuum leak on the manifold. #3 was lean, that was it. While I had it apart I decided to do a valve job on it. that is were all this started
