yes I would drain the oil and take the sump off and see if there is any silver metallic in the sump you will also be able to inspect the conrods its possible you have more than one,did the tractor pour out any white smoke just before it stopped.

tourque them one conrod at a timeand try to move the shaft by hand after every one without the head on it should be easy to turn,you will find out if one is gripping or if you have had been supplied with the wrong bearings
