Head was warped. Being checked for cracks and machined if okay.
I just don't believe that the gasket was "blown".
Some folks have questioned if oil was just a film on water. I now think that it may have been and I have no clue as to when the coolant was last changed. Have flushed the block with hot water and approx tablespoon of oil came out. Rest was water. However, more flushing to do - and tractor is not parked in such a way that all liquid comes out.
Tomorrow's a new day. Hope to re-install head and radiator and learn some more.
