I have a friend who knows little if anything about tractors but likes old cars, he suggested the same thing, cover the whole in the block, goop it up and rebuild. I'm not so sure, I guess I would like to know what folks think of that idea as well. I should say that the primary use of the tractor is not everyday heavy farming -rather its cutting a field a few times a year, doing some dirt pushing from time to time and just a great stress reliever (althought the hole in the block did not do any stress releiving, I can tell you that for sure)!

A lot depends on how fast you want to get it running again and how much the individual parts cost. You"ll have to line up an crank, rod(s), cam, etc make sure that the hole is the only damage to the block , etc. Then compare the price and the timing to gather and install all the parts to the price of a used or remanucactured engine.
Bad car engine castings were repaired that way at the factory as long as the flaw was below a certain size and was in a non-critical area. However car engines are not structural to the chasis and that"s not the case with a tractor engine. See if the Ford shop manaul recomends this as a repair process.
