Thank you, I had scraped and scraped, then I went out there with some brake clean and a pick and black sooty stuff started to come up. I worked on it for a long time, finally got to metal. It's not gushing anymore and the tractor can be moved, but I think a small amount of oil is permeating.

Thank you all very much for making me understand.

Now if any of you have any tips on how to properly tighten the belt that goes from the crank to the fan I'd love to know what the secret is.

The fan belt is designed to be much looser than any normal belt. If you put your thumb on the middle of the span between pulleys, and push about as hard as you can with that thumb, it should move a total of about an inch, from the point of contact to the full push. It will feel lose, it is OK. If an inch and a quarter you might tighten it, or might not. If too tight it will burn out bearings in the Water pump. Jim

The big nut on the side of the head is not supposed to turn. To get the hub loose you need a wrench on the side next to the fanblade and loosen it up then you can slide the fan assy up to get the belt tight. Do no try to turn the big nut on the head side. It is made to slide in the slot.

does it have the adjustable pulley like an H farmall? you have to adjust the pulley so the belt rides up higher in the pulley to make it tighter.
