My first question would be why did you take it apart ? Was is smoking / using oil ?

Second question would be what do you plan to do with it ?
Technically you can rering it but it is on the edge of the scale . Hastings claims .012 tapper but I hate to think of the rings expanding and contracting that much on each stroke . If you are selling it or don't plan on using it much , you might get out cheap .
Usable oversized pistons can be sold to help recoup some of the cost . I have custom bored blocks to tightly fit used oversized pistons .

Weakest link in my opinion is the oil pump , spend the money to get it rebuilt tightly .

I got this tractor from an estate. I saw the PO bushhogging with it a few times 20+ years ago, it seemed to have plenty of power and it certainly wasn't smoking. (I didn't get a chance to observe the oil pressure) Winter of '92, the PO parked it in a shed on his place...the following spring it wouldn't run, so he just walked away and there it sat until I pulled it out of the shed and opened up the engine.
I found one of the exhaust valves was firmly stuck doubt the cause of the twenty-years-ago troubles.
I'll use this tractor to mow a 50'x 2000' strip in our pasture...maybe 6 times per year.
