Do you rely on the tractor for work or is it just a fun thing to have. If it runs well and there's no smoke, I say if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Clean the top of the piston and the valves. Clean the cylinder several times by spraying with WD40 or kerosene, then turn the crank until the piston comes up and goes down abit. Wipe the line of junk out of the top of the cylinder that was left when the piston went down. Do this several times until there is no loose dirt in the cylinder. Give it all a last wipe down with a cean cloth and then lightly oil it. Then put the head on with a new gasket. Change the oil. Use Marvel Mystery oil in your gas. Good Luck, Rick

If you plan on keeping it and mowing with it I would find another Block or Upgrade it to a 14,15 or 16hp briggs cast iron single.Or just use it till she's completely worn out then replace it.
Briggs made millions of the 16hp Cast iron block engines.You can find them on alot of commercial equipment with reasonable low hours pretty easily.
If it's .020 over and still has wear then it needs bored again.Can't get a .040 or .050 over piston so just use it till you can find another block or engine.

Before you do anything you should check parts availability, you can still get some stuff but I havnt seen any .030 over stuff for a very long time.
