It's great to do the full job as Tim suggests but back when these tractors were new, I and a lot of other young fellows who didn't have two nickels to rub together, did what ever was necessary to get them back on the road. If it needed rings, it got rings and new head gaskets. Nothing more.
We hadn't even heard of truing the heads unless you were planeing them to up the horsepower.
You bought a "learning project", didn't you?
Besides if you have to tear it down again, that will give you more "buddy" time.
Enjoy your new toy!
