Thanks for the response. What happens if we find out that the head and/or block has cracked. And if you remember, this happened as the tractor was just sitting in the barn and not being ran. Is there a way to tell that it is just the gasket?

I suggest you read pages 5, 31, 32 from Blue Ribbon Service Manual GSS-1007. See the PDF manual links above or use this: http://www.farmallcub.com/[ Sorry, direct links to manual section is not allowed. ]/index.p ... ls&order=0

Clean the block and head surfaces thoroughly removing all oil, carbon and old gasket material. Paint thinner or another solvent will be needed. Also coat your new head gasket with Permatex Copper coat sealer available from most auto parts stores. Apply 3 to 4 light coats to each side, allow a few minutes drying time between coats, let it get tacky then install. Keep track of the side which has the THIS SIDE UP marked on it. Torque following the service manual. After running engine to operating temp. retorque the head nuts again following the manual. Also don't forget to clean the head bolts and threads in the block. Use Permatex gasket maker sealer on the threads to prevent coolant from escaping up the threads.
