There is a good chance a standard sleeve, piston, ring kit will work in most of these vintage Ford tractor engines, but why assume anything and risk buying any parts that are not needed or will not work? The engine has to be disassembled to determine condition and sizes of crank journals. The crank may need to be reground or replaced. Before buying anything other than gaskets, try to decide how much work you want to do yourself. It may be best to let an engine shop recommend and find the correct parts especially if the engine needs custom sleeves. The bores need to be checked. If the sleeves need to be replaced, pull the old sleeves and confirm that the bores are standard size and if a standard set of sleeves will work. Make a list of all parts/sizes needed, then shopping for the correct parts is easy.
