I thought the same thing. Nope, it was from the plug........which was not tightened! Now.........why the heck is there so much oil there? It looks like that one leaky plug caused ALL that oil mess on the left side of the engine, dripping down, following the line between the head and block towards the back and dripping down the entire length. Amazing how someone could let that go for so long without even checking if the plugs were tight. They were in pretty sad shape too. Now that I have the "leak" fixed it does seem to be burning some oil.
Took all the plugs out, cleaned and gapped them (they were all wrong), gapped the points and it seems to be running a bit better. It has a bit of a miss, which presents itself as a chirping noise at the exhaust, funny little noise. I turned the idle way down so I could get a better listen to it, it seems to be happening at a regular pace, like it's just one of the cylinders, maybe a valve not closing completely. More detective work!

Can't play with it too much now, got a week off and honey-do list to match and most of it doesn't involve playing with my new tractor. We'll see how fast I can get this list done.

The chirping noise would seem to be gases escaping under pressure, check the manifold to Block. Look closely along the Head Gasket to see if there is anything there too, you did say that it was leaking along this line between the Head and the Block.This seems a very likely source of the noise and the slight misfire. maybe worthwhile checking the torque settings on the Head too. Make sure that the plugs are the correct type and gapped correctly for the voltage of the tractor.The noise is unlikely to be a Valve..John(UK)
