I needed to adjust the valves on my 8N. Found one of the valve springs was broken, so valve overhaul is in the works. The oil gallery was covered with built up oil sludge, so I need to clean the gallery simultaneously. I need your advice on a couple of items:
1. Valve kits seem to be either rotating valves and non-rotating. Which one do I need?
2. Since I'll be cleaning the gallery, I figure I will need to drop the oil pan and clean it out.

So, I figure I'll need a head gasket, oil pan gasket, valve rebuild kit (but, which one???), oil filter. Have I missed anything, or any other gaskets? I know that doing one thing leads to another on these tractors so, let me know if I need anything else, or, do anything else.
