The advantage to an Allis B is that it had a valve in head engine vs the Flat head Ns. A simple valve job on a B meant you brought the head in and it came back fresh.
A flat head means you have to bring the whole engine in and they'll sell you a sleeve and piston job, and a crank grind and bearings, plus boil the block, maybe line bore and deck the thing. Then there's surfacing the head oh, and a valve job too.
Pretty soon your $700 tractor is a $2700 tractor and you don't have paint or wires or tires on it yet.
Buyer beware.
