You can make the gaskets for the block to case and your rocker cover. Cork for the rocker cover and the harder gasket sheet for the case. Summit has sheets available large enough to make one. Or if you have some tight... non corrugated cardboard that'll work too. Just check that your pistons don't come out past the block surface by more than a few thousandths after bolting the block on. Thinner gasket = higher piston... = little more compression.
I have a new R head gasket I didn't use listed on eBay right now that has a bid. As it is it's about 30 less than from mother Deere. Don't know what the other guy bid though? Thinking Deere wants 110-ish but don't think you have to pay shipping from them?
Like Husker44A said... Be a good idea to hone and really be nice to get new rings and gap them. At least the compression rings anyway. Oil rings would probably be fine and they cost a lot more aftermarket anyway.
Great idea for loosening them up. Never considered that. Used diesel juice soaking on the R I used to have... when it started to leak out I took a piece of locust and a hammer to them.
