Question about Ford Tractor 8n Front Emblem
Sounds like the needle in your carburetor stuck open (from bits of rust and/or other foreign matter in the tank) and it may have drained your gas tank into your crankcase. This is a typical for n-series Ford tractors that have a gravity fed fuel supply. With the needle and seat open, the fuel will flow freely into the carburetor, and if the rubber air intake hose is tight and doesn't allow the fuel to leak out of the carburetor onto the ground, the fuel continues to rise in the carburetor until it enters the intake manifold and then into the engine. The result is a crankcase filled with a mixture of oil and gasoline. When the engine is started, a spewing of the thinned mixture out of the oil filler cap results. This has happened to me when I have failed to shut off for the gas line after running the engine. This shutoff usually located where the gas line comes out of the tank.
If this is the case, don't run the engine until you have drained your crankcase of the oil/gas mixture, clean out the filter canister and refill with good oil and new filter.
An inline gas filter usually solves this problem although I never again trust a needle to not stick open.

Sounds like your rings are either stuck or broke. Check the compression, it's probably low or non existant on at least one cylinder. In either case it sounds like a tear down.
