Soundguy, I didn't run the tractor except for a spin around the man's yard. However, I saw the oil saturated around the radiator fill neck "cushion material" and the oil in radiator. After removing the head, I saw the oil in the water jacket of the head and engine. Nope, not just a sheen.
May be a mistake since probable block problem; but head is at engine machine shop and quick check suggests will need to shave about 0.015 off head around cyl 1 & 4 outside.
I am going to have the block magnafluxed, or whatever. Cost is reasonable for me to at least know.
I'm guessing that it would depend upon location and size of crack, if it exists. But, any welding options for a block cracked in this probable manner. (No visible external cracks or cracks at top of block.)
