Allis C rebuild question

I bought a semi restored 1944 "C" around 6 months ago, it initially ran great! I have had some problems lately with loss of power. I have been noticing oil leaking through my spark plug holes on #2&3 cylinders. Is this a sure sign of needing a rebuild? If so could I replace my "C" motor with a "CA" without any major modifications? I have noticed that rebuild kits are so expensive that you can by a nice running engine for less! I am a new tractor owner and I would like any suggestions you may have.

The CA engine should "bolt right in" everything should fit and function, linkages etc. should be the same.

The CA engine is a much "better" more modern engine with full pressure oil lubrication on the main bearings, camshaft bearings and the Connecting ROD bearings. (The original C engine has oil pressure lube to the main bearings and cam bearings only with the connecting rods lubed by a "stream or spray" of oil from holes in the camshaft.)

The CA engine can have the horsepower increased with an increased bore cylinder and high compression piston - sleeve set and still hold up well. Hope that this helps.

Are you sure oil is coming fron spark plug hole and not driping from valve cover. Before you condem the engine do a compression test.
