My friend was a farm hand when he was much younger and
did maintain the equipment they used every day. they were using John Deere's. He was mowing my property, and he comes up often as he likes we are old hunting partners from 40 years ago. I live on a hill with lots of hunting opportunities. I told him stuff happens, I know it was not intentional and not his fault. He felt really bad about it. It is just something that happened. I have a couple other 8n's that I am going to restore, as in fixing any known problems and then painting them up and selling them. This is my 1st 8n and has the side mount distributor I would like to fix it if I can. It seems in really good shape and was owned by a grape farmer for many years before I got it. I appreciate everyones advise so far, keep the comments and ideas coming. I am leaning on fixing it, but the jury is still out. I would like one tractor to drive in the local parade and if I put a lot of work into this one that could be its future.

I think all the options have been discussed with the exception of the V6 conversion kits. So I wouldn't be surprised if you don't get anymore suggestions. Not sure I'd spend 2300 to replace the block with a reman. Not when I could buy a whole tractor for that.
So the ball is in your court so to speak. It's your tractor. You have to make it.

I will point out that if you try to fix the block and fail it's just going to cost more money when you finally get it fixed. I know that I would never try to fix that block if I was hired to repair the tractor. I would insist on a rebuildable block, reman or if the customer insisted on a used engine they would sign a work order that clearly stated that there is no warranty and why.
